The Future We Want - A Better World
Through Human Rights Learning

March 15, 2013

This conference was held March 15, 2013 with participating educators  in Kuwait, Canada, Mexico, Philippines, and the United States. 

Conversations during this conference are being used as a jumping off point for participants to take back to their schools and communities. Sites will reconvene in 2014 to report and share.

During the conference, Matthew Conforth was awarded GEM's Global Educator Award. Read more about that here.
