Around 1,000 delegates from more than 85 countries have gathered at Going Global this year.

The conference is being held at a significant time for the sector and opening remarks highlighted the message that education is international in outlook and values, and the desire to preserve and develop important relationships remains paramount.

Knowledge diplomacy and the digital world are the themes of this year’s event, and the opening plenary asks whether we are entering a new dark age with technology making the world harder to understand with an analysis from James Bridle, UK writer and artist.

Other sessions include ways to bring international education to more disadvantaged groups, while student recruitment in a digital world asks: ‘Can a single tweet change the course of thousands of students?’
