Invitation to submit proposals for Going Global 8 Miami The Conference for Leaders of International Education
The British Council is organising the Going Global conference between 29 April - 1 May 2014 in Miami. Going Global is a major international education conference attracting around 1200 delegates from 80 countries. It consists of a series of seminar sessions delivered by leading experts in a number of areas related to education. This conference also offers excellent networking opportunities with policy makers, administrators and academics from around the world.
Miami is a diverse global city and one of the world’s hubs for transport, banking and trade as well as culture and education. The city is a dynamic crossroads between North, South and Central America and is an ideal location to create a shared purpose for education globally.
