The Atlantic Council and U.S. Department of State invites you to join the second in a series of virtual events titled, “Summit of the Americas Office Hours” focused on engaging with youth, US and regional government officials, academic leaders, and university students on the Summit process, as well as the challenges and opportunities our region faces.

This second event will convene US government policymakers and public health practitioners for an inclusive conversation about health and pandemic resilience in the Americas.

Global crises such as climate change and COVID-19 have impacted the mental and physical health of communities across the Americas. Each issue transcends borders, revealing the need for a more robust hemispheric response. What can communities across the hemisphere learn from others’ experiences and approaches? How can the ninth Summit of the Americas respond to the growing need for a more collaborative health protocol? What role can young people play in galvanizing a healthier environment for future generations?

Students and young professionals are invited to join a meeting, where they’ll get the chance to ask questions directly to the experts and share their own opinions.
