About the Event

Nestled between the Andes and the Pacific, this event virtually immersed audience members in Chile, showing them all that it has to offer as a future travel destination—from food and wine to history and art, or from mountains and valleys to nightlife and urban living. Before considering travel to Chile, we invited attendees to join the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia, its event partner, ProChile, and its "Beyond Our Borders: Spotlight Chile" series co-presenters, the Chilean & American Chamber of Commerce and the Honorary Consul of Chile in Philadelphia, to take a virtual journey to visit our southern neighbor, Chile.

About the "Beyond Our Borders" Series

This event is part of new programming for the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia, the “Beyond Our Borders” series. The Council is offering programming across its activities—speaker events, student programs, and travel (with the objective of hosting a tour in March 2022, due to COVID precautions)—to provide its members and the Greater Philadelphia community a deeper understanding of Chilean culture, politics, cuisine, and its role in the world at large.

The Council is focusing on Chile for the launch of this program series because of the robust and long-standing international relationship between the country and Philadelphia.  In addition to our relationship, which supports thousands of jobs, there is a multi-year initiative to increase tech industry relationships and business development.
