About GlobalEd Events

GlobalEd Events is a non-profit dedicated to providing innovative face-to-face and virtual learning opportunities for students, educators, and organizations. Through GlobalEd Events and its signature event, the Global Education Conference, participants leverage technology to connect and collaborate across borders. This organization provides unique access to professional development, partnerships, teaching resources, and information about the services of leading global education organizations with the end goal of increasing global competence among students and teachers.

The Global Education Conference Network is the 28,000 member community of practice run by the GlobalEd Events team. This community is designed to specifically address the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goal 4 of ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. SDG Indicator 4.7 specifically relates to our work, "By 2030, ensure that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including, among others, through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture's contribution to sustainable development".

Starting in 2010 with the launch of the virtual Global Education Conference, co-founders Steve Hargadon and Lucy Gray have hosted various events. Over the last decade, the duo has organized Global Education Day at the International Society for Technology in Education Conference (ISTE). In 2015, Global Collaboration Day was added, followed by Global Leadership Week and the Global Leadership Summit in 2016. Additionally, they have produced the Global Student Conference, the Global Education Fair, and GlobalEd.TV. Content related to globally connected teaching and learning is curated in the GEC community, and you can find keynote addresses from past events on the GEC Network YouTube channel.

  • General support and recognition
