BUILDING AND SUSTAINING EFFECTIVE PARTNERSHIPS FOR GLOBAL EDUCATION
NOVEMBER 14-16, 2019 // BUITRAGO, MADRID, SPAIN
Partnerships with schools, community organizations, businesses, universities, and educational travel providers are an essential part of our daily work in global education. We know that effective and sustainable partnerships take time, support, and communication, often across cultures. Join GEBG for an in-depth exploration on how best to build, grow and sustain effective partnerships through a series of workshops, speakers, and panels of educators. Spend productive time with your existing partners, meet potential partners, create new relationships, and learn new skills in cross-cultural leadership.
Hosted by GEBG member Gredos San Diego (GSD) at their International School Buitrago campus, in the beautiful village of Buitrago right outside of Madrid. GSD is a leader in Spain for building a network of sustained partnerships for global education across multiple schools. Housing will be available at the school’s conference center on campus in Buitrago. Transportation will be provided out to Buitrago from the GSD Las Suertes campus in Madrid Centro. Spots in this program are limited.
