Lucy Gray created this Ning Network.


The Global Education Conference Network 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. The event is free and takes place entirely online.

Please join this community to receive updates about our 2017 events! We also have a new site, GlobalEd Events, that provides additional information regarding our events.
