At the heart of the Global Connections Seminar is the belief that by gathering a diverse group of educators from around the world, each participant will often be exposed to educational initiatives beyond their own country’s efforts. Here you will find the information about all the seminars held by the Global Connections Foundation and the upcoming event in 2019.
