Climate Change and National Security
Please join the Atlantic Council, in partnership with the Government of Sweden, for a Transatlantic Partnership for the Global Future series workshop. On Friday, April 17, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (1030 15th St. NW, Washington, DC 20005), we will convene a group of Swedish and American experts and officials for an off-the-record roundtable discussion on Climate Change and National Security
Rising sea levels, stronger storms, increasing temperatures, and polluted natural resources are displacing people and leading to greater instability worldwide. The goal of this workshop is to better understand the state of the climate security conversation in Washington, DC, as well as US priorities and plans for mitigating and managing the consequences of climate change.

Please see the attached draft agenda for a better understanding of the key questions we hope to address in the course of the workshop.  

Launched in 2013, the Transatlantic Partnership for the Global Future is a project between the Government of Sweden and the Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security’s Strategic Foresight Initiative. The project brings together experts from government, business, academia, and the science and technology community to address how trends in society, economy, and technology will impact the transatlantic and global communities in the future. 

If you are able to attend, RSVP with this link. Should you have any questions, please contact Strategic Foresight Initiative Assisntat Director Ms. Aparajitha Vadlamannati at or 202-778-4951. We hope that you will be able to join us for what promises to be a stimulating discussion.
