(DC) Sphere Summit: Teaching Civic Culture Together
July 14, 2019 - July 18, 2019
The Sphere Summit is a summer program for grades 5-12 educators. The Sphere Summit will hold its opening seminar, “Teaching Civic Culture Together,” at the Cato Institute in Washington, DC, on July 14–18, 2019.
For more than four decades, the Cato Institute has introduced people, including millions of young people, to the ideas of freedom. Many Cato books are already taught in high school curricula across the country. To advance the ideas of liberal democracy and the rule of law, Cato has developed the Sphere Summit for educators. The Summit features discussions from balanced points of view by leading policy experts, academics, and thought leaders.
The Sphere Summit aims to restore a spirit of civil, constructive, and respectful discourse and engagement and to return facts, analysis, and research to primacy as the vehicles for discussion and debate.
