#NATOENGAGES LATEST

What is 'NATO ENGAGES'?

This December, the world will watch as heads of state and government and military leaders gather at the NorthAtlantic Treaty Organization’s Leaders’ Meeting in London.

With the commemoration of the Alliance’s 70th anniversary, this past year has served to honor NATO’s achievements. To round off this historic year, the NATO Leaders’ Meeting in December presents an important opportunity to jointly assess challenges and opportunities and highlight NATO’s enduring value as it adapts to a changing world.

Building on the success of NATO Engages Brussels 2018 and NATO Engages Washington, DC 2019, the Atlantic Council, GLOBSEC, King’s College London, the Munich Security Conference, and the Royal United Services Institute will organise the official NATO outreach event the day before the Leaders’ Meeting in cooperation with NATO and the UK government.

The town hall-style scene-setting event in central London will encourage a broader public conversation about the importance of NATO, add new voices into the conversation about today’s changing world, and cast a look into NATO’s future.
