Counting Down to Global Leadership Week!

Here are several ways you can get involved with the Global Education Conference Network whether you are an individual educator or represent a company or organization! Here is information about our next set of events. Thank you to Participate and to IIE for supporting Global Leadership Week!

Global Leadership Week — April 24–28

How can we encourage others to get involved with global education? Consider serving as a leader and advocate for global education during our week long online celebration. We have a few events on our calendar, but we are in need more projects that will encourage global action through leadership by students, educators, and/or organizations. See this page for directions and ideas: Keep it simple!

We are looking for media outreach partners for GLW. If your organization can publicize events to a large network, please let us know.

The Global Leadership Summit — April 24th

If you are located in New York City and would like to attend this face-to-face summit, please email Lucy for an invitation at This is only for people who will be in NYC on April 24th and will be streamed live on our main website. Travel arrangements are the sole responsibility of attendees. We do not grant requests for visa letters and such, so please do not ask.

The Global Education Fair — April 27th

This is a virtual “fair” for educators to learn more about tools, services, and programs related to global education. It is free to attend and free for individual educators to pitch individual projects. There are fees for non-profit and for-profit organizations. Consider this an opportunity for pitching your work to interested global educators plus other benefits.

Those presenting at the fair will develop a short video which we then will post in an online gallery. Then, GEF presenters will sign up for time slots for drop-in sessions with attendees. During these drop in sessions, presenters can give formal presentations or hold informal Q&A sessions. Sign up here: and more details will be forthcoming.

Global Education Day at ISTE — June 25th

Registration has been open for a few weeks and we have had a strong response to this annual event. Make sure to reserve your space only if you will be in San Antonio in June: Again, travel arrangements are the sole responsibility of attendees.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns! Follow us on Twitter at @GlobalEdCon and using the hashtag #globaled17 to keep up with the latest global education news and resources.
