The World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh is celebrating our 90th anniversary of connecting Pittsburghers to each other and to the world. Just one day isn’t enough to recognize so many years — our 90 for 90 anniversary celebration will last for 90 days!
From July 13 to October 11, the Council will promote and host activities that connect people to each other, their local communities, and the outdoors. Learn how you can join us!
90 Activities for 90 Years
Every day during our anniversary celebration, we will be promoting globally-minded podcasts and movies, virtual events around the world, and in-person activities you can do in Pittsburgh or in your own community.
90 for 90 Virtual Challenge
Sustainable ways of getting around are simple and affordable ways to work toward the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); they promote good health and wellbeing, make job opportunities and human services more accessible, and improve air quality and road safety.
The World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh believes getting to know the world around us starts with the world right beneath our feet. That’s why as part of our 90 for 90 anniversary celebration, we invite you take on our challenge to log 90 miles in 90 days by walking, running, biking, kayaking, or anything else that gets you moving! That’s only one mile per day! You can register to log your miles from July 13 – October 11 using the atlasGO app. REGISTER NOW!
