Welcome to the first issue of Spotlight on Mumbai ! This year we want to give you all of the information that you need to plan your trip to Mumbai for the first Biennial Conference to be held in Region 11, March 30-April 2! Don't forget, plan to arrive by March 29 and depart after April 2 since the conference begins at 9:00 am on March 30 and finishes at 5:00 pm on April 2.
The Board, Liaisons, Committees and Task Forces have been busy since the last time I wrote to you, even though FAWCO's Northern Hemisphere clubs are in their summer hiatus. Since April progress has been made on many fronts.

The members of the Human Rights Task Force hope you are having a relaxing and joyful summer. Time is flying by, and soon school and club activities will restart. We are issuing this mini-bulletin to provide you with some information about the upcoming 16 Days Campaign Against Gender Based Violence for use in your fall planning, along with some other timely items. We'll be back with more in September. Stay cool!
As you will see, even in the summer there is much FAWCO news to report. FAWCO Reps, please take some time during the upcoming weeks to look over your club's website and confirm that there is a link to FAWCO on the homepage, with the new FAWCO logo. While you are there, it would be a good opportunity to check content for the most current FAWCO information. With the recent rebranding, there may be updating needed and summer months can be a more convenient time to make changes on the club website.
Summer is upon us and the days are long and balmy. As we realize vacations that have only been dreams until now, please take a moment to read what one of our members, Tara Scott, did to kick off her summer.
The Bulletin will be on hiatus until September. We look forward to reconnecting in the fall and hearing all of your "back to school" stories. Until then, stay cool and enjoy!
It's July - really!!!
For our Canadian friends, Happy Canada Day (July 1st) and to our American friends, I wish you a Happy 4th of July. For those who celebrated Stateside, I hope you enjoyed a wonderful firework show and all the festivities it comes with - I am envious, in the warmest way possible!
Celebrate the 4th of July by registering to vote in the 2016 U.S. elections!
What better way to celebrate our country’s birth than to register to vote in the November elections, and to encourage and help other Americans to do so?
The 4th of July often means barbecue, watermelon and fireworks, but be sure to add to your celebration the exercise of your right and duty as a citizen to steer the country’s course into the future. If you’ve already registered, find two Americans who haven’t and help them do so.
This election is too important for any overs...
Picking up where we left off last month, we will explore the research on global education.
Data | Statistics | Research
I wanted to go hide under my blanket or better yet binge watch Game of Thrones as I tackled this blog issue… But I pushed through… if we don’t understand where the data is coming from and how it is being used, then we don’t really know how we know, what we know - with me? In the end, I learned a lot and hope you do too!
My initial questions were:
Where does the primary data on global education come from?
This was one of the first things I tried to wrap my head around when I began delving into the issues concerning global education for women and girls. I found it interesting that concern for global education issues follows a similar timeline as the evolution of modern market globalization. So we don’t need to go back too far to understand how we got to where we are to today.
No one will be surprised if I say there are countless organizations doing very important work in the field of global education. There are those who are doing the research to gather data so we know where we’ve c...
Even though the weather in the Netherlands leaves much to be desired at the moment, summer is upon us! You, like many others, probably have a vacation planned in the coming weeks: either to see new and interesting things, to visit family and friends, or to relax. Maybe the best kind of vacation is when all 3 of these things are combined.
