iEARN (The International Education and Resource Network) is pleased to announce that the 2018 International Conference and Youth Summit will be hosted by iEARN-USA in Winchester, Virginia from July 8 – 14, 2018.
The 2018 International Conference and Youth Summit coincides with the 30th Anniversary of iEARN, which started in 1988 with the first project collaborations between schools in New York and schools in Moscow. The iEARN annual conference is an important, in-person gathering to celebrate ongoing virtual work and has been hosted by a different country each year since 1994.
The theme for the 2018 conference is Global Collaboration for Sustainable Development.
This conference will celebrate iEARN’s 30-year history of people and projects that have changed the world while also envisioning a future where educators and youth work together to build a more peaceful and sustainable world. The 2018 conference will bring together educators, students, and partners to meet and discuss how they will continue to achieve SDGs through global, collaborative project work.
Editor’s Note: Such a milestone! Congratulations. Having been personally involved in the early stages, I could never have imagined ( but certainly hoped) the network would grow as it has!
The 2nd I*EARN conference in 1995 in Melbourne was an incredible experience and we had not yet seen even one decade of I*EARN. I have no doubt the conference will be a wonderful experience for those celebrating the beginning of the FOURTH decade!
