International Education Week (IEW)

International education and international migration are intimately linked, both phenomena increasingly taking centre stage as globalisation continues to re-shape the challenges faced by today’s work force.

I am privileged to be working with a Sino-American university project over IEW this year (November 14 to November 18) , contributing to an initiative that delivers global competency and leadership skills  to young people in Asia faced with the challenges of preparing to work in an increasingly inter-connected and inter-dependent world.

Let us celebrate IEW and the amazing potential education has to bridge political and cultural divides in the service of diverse international leadership, and socially responsible development.

A series of workshops providing relevant training for educators interested in contributing over IEW are being hosted in Washington DC, more information is available here.
