Understand Our Mission
The Global Education Conference is a collaborative, world-wide community initiative involving students, educators, and organizations at all levels. It is designed to significantly increase opportunities for building education-related connections around the globe while supporting cultural awareness, recognition of diversity, and educational access for all.
The conference seeks to present ideas, examples, and projects related to connecting educators and classrooms with a strong emphasis on promoting global awareness, fostering global competency, and inspiring action towards solving real–world problems. Through this event, it is our hope that attendees will challenge themselves and others to become more active citizens of the world. Let us learn, question, create, and engage in meaningful, authentic opportunities within a global context!

Organizations are also highly encouraged to share their events, projects, and resources that may be of benefit to the global ed community at large. We serve as a clearing house to all the amazing work that is currently being conducted.
We also welcome you to post relevant videos, photos, and blogs. The blogging feature in our network is geared towards sharing personal reflections rather than news and resources.
