Russia’s War in Ukraine: Bracing for Long-term Competition

Russia’s War in Ukraine: Bracing for Long-term Competition

(A Conversation with Professor Adam Stulberg, Georgia Tech)

Door Time: 6:30 PM
Show Time: 7:00 PM

Russia and Ukraine have been at odds since the end of the Soviet Union. Many Russians, especially President Putin, feel Ukraine should still be a part of their country due to a shared history and similar cultures. However, Ukraine treasures its sovereignty and has strived to balance historical ties with Russia with closer alignment to the West.  Putin’s fateful February 2022 decision to wage war in Ukraine raises fundamental issues concerning limits to escalation, the meaning of victory, consequences and success of sanctions, and prospects for transformation of global politics, economics, and norms.  Bring your own questions and join us for a thoughtful discussion with Professor Stulberg, Chair of the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs at Georgia Tech, who will put the war in context and facilitate a conversation with the audience.

Chautauqua Tree Tour

Chautauqua Tree Tour

Event Time: 3:00 PM

Did you know Chautauqua has varieties of over 500 trees? Chautauqua’s enchantment lies in its setting, but the early settlers did little to cultivate the trees.  Only the hardy native vegetation could withstand the summer heat and winter snow. By comparison, todays Chautauqua hosts an abundant urban forest. Join tree experts Bill Briggs and Jeff Rump as they guide you through the flowering oasis of native and imported species that have been introduced in the past 120 year. Chautauqua has everything from Eastern White Pines to Kentucky Coffee Trees to Buckeyes, in addition to the familiar Ashes, Oaks, Elms, and Ponderosa Pines. Attend this complimentary one hour tour to learn about the trees of Chautauqua and their history.
