(Eureka)— Local and state educators are joining forces with the Humboldt County Office of Education (HCOE) and the California Global Education Project (CGEP) to bring you the North Coast Global Education Forum. The Forum will be held on March 11, 2023, from 8:30 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. at the HCOE Annex.
Leading the Forum are two global education advocates, Greg Gaiera of Union Street Charter School and Dr. Colby Smart, Assistant Superintendent of HCOE. Dr. Smart will open the day as keynote speaker, sharing his expertise and insights on the importance of global education.

- Investigating the world beyond their immediate environment
- Recognizing perspectives, others’ and their own
- Communicating ideas effectively with diverse audiences
- Taking action to improve conditions
