Going Global 2020: Social Distancing Edition

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

In the absence of a conference this year, we are sharing a limited amount of digital content throughout June and July which explores the theme 'Global learners, global innovation'. This will include live virtual events, blog posts and posters.

We understand how important and impactful a face-to-face conference is for higher education leaders for connecting with their peers and sharing the latest ideas and innovations in the sector.  However we want to continue the conversation around international higher education, especially at such a crucial time for the sector.
