    WorldQuest: A Global Pop Trivia Challenge

    Week 3

    The World Affairs Council of New Hampshire, in conjunction with the World Affairs Councils of America Network, is hosting a nationwide global trivia challenge! 

    Each week for four weeks, WACNH will host an hour-long online trivia competition and Zoom hangout as a fun opportunity to stay engaged with the world. Registration costs just $5 per session, with the weekly winner receiving 25% of the registration fees for that evening's event! The remainder of registrations will serve as a donation to the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire to support our programs and work. After the 4 week season ends, the person with the most points over that time period will proceed to the online National Competition to compete against the champions of each participating Council from across the country. Finally, the winner of the National Competition will receive a free conference registration for the World Affairs Councils of America National Conference in Washington, DC in November.

    WACNH Live! Heart of Europe:

    The Czech Republic, the European Union

    and the Rise of Populism

    Due to the cancellation of all WACNH in-person events until at least August because of COVID-19, we are happy to be launching WACNH Live! This series of virtual events will feature several of our originally planned upcoming speakers presenting on important international topics, straight to you at home.

    The current political situation in the Czech Republic, a small country in the very heart of Europe and historically considered the crossroads between the West and the East, is a reflection of the latest developments in the entire European Union. With Brexit, a recent refugee crisis, and the rise of populist and authoritarian tendencies across the continent, the EU has been facing serious challenges from multiple fronts in the past several years. On June 3rd at 4pm, hear from Czech scholar and researcher Dr. Martin Nekola as he addresses these issues, with a further focus on current trends in Czech politics. All questions can be emailed to council@wacnh.org, or posted in either of the YouTube or Facebook Live chats before or during the event, so tune in here at wacnh.org and we hope to see you there!

    When: Wednesday, June 3rd at 4:00 pm

    Where: wacnh.org


    This event was made possible by the generous support of:
