Great Decisions is a national, grassroots foreign policy discussion program sponsored by the Foreign Policy Association. Each year eight topics of current importance are discussed by people in small groups all over the United States. Additional information about this program can be found here.

Topic: High Seas Treaty

- Areas of the seas beyond national jurisdiction comprise the high seas, which are facing a degradation of ecosystems due to climate change and the increase in human activities, such as shipping, overfishing, pollution, and deep-sea mining. The recently negotiated High Seas Treaty, also known as the Biodiversity Beyond National Jurisdiction treaty, will attempt to address these issues. How difficult will it be to convince nations to participate?

The local Hillsboro group meets at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Washington County, 6815 NE Birch St, Hillsboro on the first and third Saturdays during February through May. January meeting is to volunteer to present a specific topic. Each meeting is at 10:00 am in the church social hall.
