Mission 7 The Global Education Conference Network is a community of practice where people connect and build the professional relationships necessary for effective collaboration across borders. Via this social network, educators and organizations from all over the world share conversations, resources, projects, and initiatives with a strong emphasis on promoting global awareness, fostering global competency, and inspiring action towards solving real-world problems. Our ultimate goal is to help prepare students for a rapidly changing and complex world.
