As the global community continues to grapple with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read an update from our President and CEO.

An #ACFrontPage event

Atlantic Council Front Page is our premier live ideas platform for global leaders to discuss the defining challenges of our time.

Atlantic Council Front Page is a new virtual event series featuring top newsmakers across multiple digital platforms. Harnessing the convening power and expertise of the Council’s thirteen programs and centers, #ACFrontPage leverages the Council’s capabilities in social media, press, and digital outreach to spotlight the world’s most prominent leaders and the most compelling ideas across sectors and engage new audiences eager for nonpartisan and constructive solutions to current global challenges. This widely promoted program features the Council’s most important guests and content serving as the highlight of our programming each week.


In the midst of the greatest man-made crisis in the Western Hemisphere, the coronavirus outbreak poses critical new challenges for Venezuela’s fragile population. Interim President Juan Guaidó continues to push for a better future for Venezuelans and has recently called for the formation of a national emergency government. What are the interim government’s next steps to face the worsening pandemic? What avenues is the interim government willing to pursue for a peaceful democratic transition?

Join us for a live discussion with Interim President Guaidó on Venezuela’s COVID-19 response and strategies going forward. The conversation will be in Spanish with simultaneous English translation.

This live show is part of the new #ACFrontPage event series, a live ideas platform spotlighting global leaders who are championing constructive solutions to global challenges. It is also the second conversation as part of the Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center’s Leaders of the Americas series where we provide a bridge for honest, solutions-focused discourse on today’s pressing regional issues.

Disinformation and misinformation, especially circulating within the biggest economy in Latin America (Brazil) and the country with the worst man-made humanitarian crisis in the hemisphere (Venezuela), can foment national catastrophes that will be felt well beyond the realms of the online information space and national borders.
