Yesterday, my conference co-chair, Steve Hargadon, and I had the opportunity to present at UNC's World View Fall Symposium. This is a global education conference, mainly geared toward, but not exclusively for, North Carolina educators. This event was keynoted by Homa Tavangar, who will also be keynoting for our conference in November. This was a great global education conference and it's exciting to see how North Carolina is taking the lead in the United States for making global education a priority.
I was able to attend two general session and two featured presentations and I'm providing links to these organizations as I think they are worth knowing about.
Steve and I also had the opportunity to talk to Matt Nink, a GEC member, who runs the Global Youth Leadership Institute. We're looking forward to him connecting us to more students who may present at GlobalEdCon. Check out his org here: https://www.gyli.org/.
