The annual Global Solutions Forum is a gathering of SStS partners: NGOs, alumni, educators, and businesses. This three-day event from October 25 -27 creates opportunities for the SStS community to collaborate in support of effective strategies in global education and ethical leadership. True partners create time to work together in shared space, to laugh, to remind each other of our shared value. The Forum includes a half day of sessions at Vail Mountain School on October 27 that is open to the public and two days of specific educational and professional opportunities for each partner segment in our organization. This event is presented by Borgen Family Foundation.
This year’s forum will include a two-day professional development conference for educators. The theme of the conference is Global Citizenship Education: Transforming Vision into Daily Practice. Teacher led workshops will showcase how global citizenship education is being infused through existing school programming in areas such as community service, arts, college admissions, core academics, athletics, travel abroad, advisories, parent education, and youth-led initiatives. The conference is designed to foster collaboration and support for effective strategies in global education and ethical leadership.
