It is a land of diverse physical beauty, unique wildlife and many historical similarities to the United States. Join us as we explore the history and landscape of this key U.S. ally. We will review Australia’s beginnings as a prisoner settlement, its role in numerous global conflicts and its modern challenges to protect its unique features.

Over the past couple years the price of oil has gone from over $100 per barrel to, at times, less than $30 per barrel.  This has had profound effects all over the world.  Join Active Minds as we explore the causes and consequences (positive and negative) of this dynamic.  We will cover the role of China, the impact on Fracking and the oil sector in the U.S., as well as the role of OPEC in addressing the fluctuating price of this commodity so crucial to the global economy. This event is sponsored by Frasier.
