I blinked and suddenly we're at a point in the project where I'm talking to partners about closing the project out and our legacy. This can be sad but what is great is the sheer work that the project has accomplished in the challenging circumstances we've been facing.
So - Globally MindEd will not just mark the launch our higher education toolkit for supporting international student mental health & wellbeing but will be a celebration of all the work that's been done, a thank you to the student's and organisations that supported us while managing their own priorities.
The project started planning for the project before now and at the time it still looked unclear the direction the outbreak might take - in terms of how people would be able to travel and come together. To best manage this uncertainty we took the decision to embrace a virtual experience and are working hard to provide this in the best way possible.
We were also very conscious that we wanted this to be an event that reached out to the whole sector and that inherently hosting the conference in a single University or location might jeopardise this.
Finally, we wanted to welcome as wide a body of people as possible, including students, academics, practitioners and stakeholders across the sector. We wanted to offer the event as free and 'hidden' costs related to travel, accommodation and subsistence that often go hand in hand with a face-to-face event.
Where do I sign-up?
We've launched our conference website (https://globallyminded.eventbrite.co.uk) where you can learn more about the event and register to attend.
