On Oct 25-26, members of the Global Education Coalition NYC (GEC-NYC) held two exciting events hosted by Bank Street College of Education. On Friday night, over 60 people attended the film screening of Girl Rising, a documentary produced by 10×10 that follows the stories of 9 girls from 9 countries. The film was followed by a panel discussion where the themes of access to education and girls’ rights were further explored.
The following day, GEC-NYC members partnered with Bank Street College Continuing Professional Studies to offer a day-long professional development workshop on “Fostering Global Competency in our Students“. The workshop focused on providing formal and non-formal educators and school administrators a deeper understanding of global competency along with tools and resources to practically apply it in various school settings.
Thanks to the following GEC-NYC member organizations for leading the events: AFS-USA, IVECA International Virtual Schooling, Global Concerns Classroom, Global Nomads Group, New York State After School Network, One to World’s Global Classroom, TeachUNICEF, and World Savvy.
