We at the Santa Fe Council on International Relations connect New Mexico and the world by engaging and educating people to become responsible global citizens. We promote an in-depth understanding of globalization–including the responsibilities of the global citizen–and US foreign policy through our talks and panels and lectures.
We welcome around 300 international visitors every year to northern New Mexico, plugging them into our community. Find out who’s coming to town right here!! We educate the next generation with global awareness and competencies. Visit our newly updated 2018 Education page to see all of our programs over 2018-19!
We connect ideas with action, through a membership of former ambassadors, foreign service officers, executives, and folks seeking insight into these complex times.
