1. The 9th Annual Global Education Conference (GEC)
November 18 - 20, 2019

The Global Education Conference Network's ninth annual world-wide collaboration on globally-connected education will take place around the clock starting Monday, November 18th, and continuing through Wednesday, November 20th. Mark your calendars now!

This conference is a collaborative, inclusive, world-wide community initiative involving students, educators, and organizations at all levels. Our activities are designed to significantly increase opportunities for connecting classrooms while supporting cultural awareness and recognition of diversity and educational access for all. For more information about the GEC and to access educational resources, click here to visit our online community.

This free event takes place entirely online around the clock from November 18 - 20, 2019. (And please consider supporting this work by making a donation--see below!).

This event is FREE to attend, but does require that you REGISTER!
Please register HERE

The GEC features thought leaders from the world of education and beyond, is completely free to attend, and all events take place online in webinar format. We invite you to join the 27,500 GEC community members (from 170+ countries) and actively participate in dozens of sessions focused on international education topics.

The Call for Proposals Is Open!

Proposals can be submitted until November 10, 2019, and we will begin accepting proposals on a rolling basis starting September 2, 2019. We encourage you to submit your proposal as early as possible because as soon as a proposal is accepted, you are given the ability to select from the available presentation times (the time choices become increasingly limited closer to the event).

You may submit more than one proposal. We encourage all to submit by following the detailed directions listed here. If accepted, you can present in your time zone at a time that is convenient to you!

2. Global Collaboration Week

Students, teachers, and organizations will get online to celebrate global collaboration during the week of September 23 - 27, as back-to-school season begins in the northern hemisphere.

During this week, experienced global educators and other professionals will design and host connective projects and events and invite public participation. The primary goals of this week-long event are to demonstrate the power of global connectivity in classrooms, schools, institutions of informal learning and universities around the world, and to introduce others to the tools, resources, projects, and networks that are available to educators today.

This is an opportunity for educators new to globally connected teaching and learning to participate in virtual activities designed by more experienced teachers. It's also a great way for educators running ongoing global projects to find project partners!

3. Member and Partner Support

We need your help to make our events possible!

In April of this year we moved to a member + partner support model. After ten years of holding fantastic grass-roots virtual events to help students, teachers, and organizations connect globally, we're asking our members and partners to help us fund the effort.

Please consider supporting us! We know that many of our members who are committed to global education face the same budget constraints that we do, so you do not have to contribute to stay a member of the conference network or attend our free events. However, for those that are in a position to help, we have created a structure for $10, $25, $50, $100, and $250 donations, with some fun ways of recognizing contributions.

Please click HERE to see the member-contribution information page that also allows you to contribute immediately.

We have also set up a structure for very-reasonable non-profit or non-commercial “partner” commitments. If your organization is open to helping in this way, or you represent a commercial organization wanting to help, please email

Our thanks to our premier partners:
