Education Abroad at a Crossroads: Actions for a Sustainable Future
April 21-23, 2020
Virtual

The 16th Annual Conference came at a critical time to discuss education abroad as a conduit for change. We gathered as a field to consider the viability of education abroad and the sustainability of our actions as humans on the planet. If you were unable to attend the 16th Annual Conference, you can still access some of the sessions that were offered through the following three packages. In addition to the topical focus, each package includes a selection of sessions related to The Forum’s resources, programs, and publications.
