CxC: Amplified: Putting the World Back Together

An ideas summit presented by World Affairs Councils nationwide

Putting the World Back Together marked the first time Councils across the country gathered virtually for a special, inclusive Ideas Summit, under a new brand: CxC: Amplified. Our collective programming – virtual events, conversations, debates, and engagement opportunities – on one platform aimed to meet this historic moment with unity, leadership, and dialogue.

CxC: Amplified was a full week of ideas designed to amplify voices on foreign and national policy, Council by Council, and coast to coast. Open to the public, this Ideas Summit brought together leaders, experts, and citizens across the nation to tackle the central question: 

"How will the world be put back together as we chart our way through the new coronavirus pandemic?"
