Check out the State Department’s new Opinion Space

We are interested in your perspectives and input on a series of important foreign policy questions.  “Opinion Space” is a new discussion forum designed to engage participants from around the world.

Every participant chooses a “point of view” on a global opinion map. Your position is not based on geography or predetermined categories, but on similarity of opinion: those who agree on basic issues are neighbors, those who are far apart have agreed to disagree.  You can instantly see where you stand in relation to other participants; by reviewing their comments, you help the community highlight the most insightful ideas. 

Let us know what you think!

More women are serving in elected and appointed offices at local, state and federal levels of government than ever before, thanks to the help of many who paved the way since America’s earliest days for women to fully realize the rights of citizenship. 

Follow the timeline of growth of women in U.S. government, beginning with our early female political pioneers, like Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott in Seneca Falls, New York, leading up through our present day women leaders, like Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The U.S. Embassy in Warsaw, the U.S. Consulate in Krakow, and the Zacheta National Gallery of Art invite you to a discussion with renowned American architects Anne Dyson and Christopher Sharples, who will address “New American Architecture: Architecture as an Ecological System” during a digital video conference on Wednesday March 10 at 11 a.m. The program, which is free and open to the public, will take place at the Zacheta National Gallery of Art, Sala Kinowa (entrance from ulica Burschego).

Anne Dyson is a director of the Center of Architecture, Science, and Ecologies (CASE) at the School of Architecture at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York. Christopher Sharples, a leading American architect and one of the founders of the SHoP Architects in New York, has taught at Parsons School of Design, the City University of New York, Columbia University, Yale University, and the University of Virginia.

Wednesday’s conference will be held in English, and Polish commentary will be given by Wojciech T. Oktawiec, president of Path Architecture in New York. The audience in Warsaw will connect to Krakow, where both architects are lecturing about modern American architecture to the general public.
