The Conference on World Affairs, originally founded in 1948 as a forum on international affairs, expanded rapidly in its early years to encompass the arts, media, science, diplomacy, technology, environment, spirituality, politics, business, medicine, human rights, and so on. Roger Ebert, who has participated in the CWA for four decades, refers to the CWA as “the Conference on Everything Conceivable.”
Each April 100 participants representing a wide range of backgrounds gather in Boulder, CO for what The New York Times calls “a week-long extravaganza of discussion and debate”. For the 8th time IPS Fellow and director of the Institute’s Drug Policy Project, Sanho Tree will be one this year’s several panelists on approximately 200 panels, plenaries and performances.
