Call for participation

Going Global is the British Council’s flagship annual conference for world education leaders – those in the non-compulsory education sector with decision making responsibilities – to debate issues and challenges relevant to global higher and further education, and to discuss collaborative solutions.


Going Global 2016’s theme is “Building nations and connecting cultures: education policy, economic development and engagement”, in which education leaderswill discuss international education roles in building partnerships to address collective concerns, apart from its contribution to economic development, research and innovation. Going Global 2016 asks how we reconcile the need for locally relevant national development and priorities alongside a commitment to international education for the global good? What does all this mean for colleges, universities and the national education system?
