"The Academic Network for Global Education & Learning (ANGEL), sponsored and supported by Global Education Network Europe, will be organising its second international conference on May 9th and 10th in London.

Global education has never been more important than it is today, with the rise of nationalism and a retreat from support for a sense of global social responsibility. Yet never has there been greater interest amongst education policy-makers and academics in terms such as global citizenship and global competencies. The launch of the Sustainable Development Goals in 2016 has also given added impetus to this interest.

The Conference will be aimed at academics, researchers, policy-makers and practitioners from around the world and it is anticipated that papers and presentations will cover all sectors of education, evidence from empirical based research as well as discussion on how to influence policy-makers.

The Conference will include a mixture of keynote presentations, papers and presentations from empirical research, debates on key issues and opportunities for meetings of specialist Journal boards, early career researchers, NGO practitioners and policy-makers. It is also planned that there will be parallel sessions covering school based education, further and higher education and informal learning."
