How might global education curriculum evolve to our new reality?
In collaboration with Fernando M. Reimers, Envoys is proud to co-host the 2020 Think Tank on Global Education for innovative educators to rapidly design and iterate new ways to meet the objectives of global education.
Global education has always been about transcending physical and geographic boundaries, making connections between individual experiences and transnational issues, and learning to work together to bring about the world that ought to be.
Now more than ever, we are witnessing the necessity for educational programming that develops the capacity and disposition to understand and take action on issues of global significance.
Over the course of one day, you will join a cohort of educators from a diverse set of schools, gaining inspiration from expert speakers and engaging together in a virtual collaboration.
Following the precepts of design thinking, teams joining this think tank will develop prototypes for programming that support learner agency, facilitate learning across differences, and demonstrate results to different stakeholders.
With feedback and input from experts and learners around the world, selected work will be serve as the basis for a companion workbook for Dr. Reimers’ recent publication Educating Students to Improve the World.
Three percent of all conference proceeds will be donated directly to our small-locally owned partners in the countries Envoys operates within to help weather the economic effects of COVID-19.

Outcomes and Policies
“The purpose of this book is to bring together [the] worlds of scholarship and practice, offering a theoretical multidimensional model of global education that places teachers, school principals, and other school-level actors at the center of defining what global education should be and how it should be done and which can support their professional choices with a systemic and comprehensive approach to developing programs of global education that are responsive to the needs and characteristics of specific schools and local contexts.“
Selected work from the Think Tank will be published in a companion workbook for Dr. Reimers’ recent publication Educating Students to Improve the World. All participants receive a certificate of participation and a letter confirming clock hours of instruction.
