In anticipation of its 100th anniversary, the Walsh School of Foreign Service is organizing an annual Centennial Event Series. Each year leading up to the 2019-2020 centennial year, SFS will choose an important theme around which to plan programs for the Georgetown and Washington, DC communities. Featuring experts and practitioners in international affairs and other disciplines intersecting with the theme, the Centennial Event Series will demonstrate the reach and relevance of SFS scholarship and its impact on key global issues.

The 2016-2017 Centennial Event Series theme is The Environment.

The Ambassadors’ Summit: Climate and Conflict

April 5, 2017 @ 5:00 am - 7:00 pm

This conference aims to address the intersectionality of Climate Change and Security. As a threat to national security, climate change acts as a threat multiplier, aggravating problems such as poverty, racial and social tensions, environmental degradation, and further destabilize states.
This conference will feature an Ambassadors panel, featuring the German Ambassador Peter Wittig, Danish Ambassador Lars Gert Lose, and Barbadian Ambassador Selwin Hart, and moderated by Kathleen Hicks, Senior VP at CSIS.
