ATLANTA….A live webcast with former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter will kick off the 2004-2005 season of the international issues discussion series Conversations at The Carter Center, Tuesday, Sept. 21, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. The webcast is free to the public on the Carter Center Web site: www.cartercenter.org.

The first of four scheduled Conversations, the sold-out event at the Center's headquarters in Atlanta will include briefings by the couple on Carter Center projects around the world, including initiatives in disease eradication, conflict resolution, democracy-building, and mental health promotion. Carter Center Executive Director Dr. John Hardman will moderate.

According to Deanna Congileo, the Center's Director of Public Information, the webcast will provide an opportunity for online participants to experience the popular events in real-time.

"This is the first time The Carter Center has offered a live webcast of Conversations. Our goal is to make these programs available to viewers from around the world and to share both the expertise of our panelists and the important work the Center continues to undertake to promote peace and health," she said.

All events will be from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in The Carter Center's Ivan Allen Pavilion, located at One Copenhill, 453 Freedom Parkway, Atlanta, and webcast live on www.cartercenter.org.

The 2004-2005 Conversations schedule also includes:

  • The State of World Conflict, Wednesday, Feb. 23, 2005
  • Children's Mental Health: Navigating the System, Thursday, April 14, 2005

Conversations at The Carter Center is an annual series of evening programs designed to increase public awareness on issues of national and global importance. Each of the programs will feature distinguished experts, special guests, and Carter Center staff, followed by a question-and-answer period.
