The GHEC2020 is taking place next week from 9 to 13 November. It is an exciting and important event on the international homeschooling calender, and South Africa is part of it! It is different because it is an international conference, showcasing international leaders, researchers, speakers and policymakers.
The GHEX, the Global Home Education Exchange, brings the GHEC2020, which this year is offered virtually, at no cost. The GHEX is an international non-governmental organization, and it promotes home education globally. Meet the GHEX Board here: https://ghex.world/about/.
The programme is packed with talks, workshops and panel discussions around the clock. Besides the many international experts on homeschooling, a number of speakers from South Africa will also take part. See the facebook page of the Trust for more detail on the African speakers. Most of the speakers’ photos and bios have already been uploaded on the GHEC2020 website. See the speakers here: https://ghex-virtual-summit.heysummit.com/speakers/. See the schedule here: https://ghex-virtual-summit.heysummit.com/schedule/. You may filter the schedule by track, and you will notice that there is a special track for Africa.
