The conference for leaders of international education

Going Global 2020 - Social distancing edition

Going Global 2020: Social Distancing Edition

Due to the ongoing situation with Covid-19, the British Council has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Going Global conference which was due to take place on 29 – 30 June in London.  Read our full Covid-19 update here.

In the absence of a conference this year, we are offering a digital alternative completely free of charge throughout the month of June.  We will be hosting live virtual events, publishing blog posts and podcasts, and sharing posters which explore this year's conference theme: 'Global learners, global innovation'.

We want to continue the conversation around international higher education, especially at such a crucial time for the sector, by inviting you to take part in the activities we have planned in June. 

How can you get involved?
