Wendy Kopp will keynote the first ever New York City Global Education Forum at the Avenues World School on May 29th at 6:30pm. UClass and the Asia Society are co-hosting this event to, for once, unite the visions of teachers, school leaders, policymakers, entrepreneurs, and students (yes, students!) around global education.
If you are a teacher looking to open your classroom walls, a school leader looking to develop 21st century skills in your school or a systems level education innovator looking to reach a more global audience - we challenge you to join this dialogue.
Join us for an evening of keynotes, a panel discussion, breakout sessions and light snacks. Walk away with a book and an action plan to support your role in a more globally focused education.
