I'm not trying to ask you to answer the question, though feel free if you feel the need, :rolleyes:.

I'm actually helping to build a database for potential speakers and atendees at a conference to be held in Lucknow, India in November of this year.

The goal of the conference is "to completely review and revise the goals of education

in the 21st century as distinct from its 19th century goals, and to discuss ways to make education more meaningful for our children and youth. The fundamental questions, "what education is for," will be discussed during the event."

I have been asked to find

Specialists in teaching (all kinds of subjects)

Specialists in Minority Education

Specialists in Curriculum Development

Specialists in Pshychology/Education

Specialists in Education Policy

Specialists in Economics, International Politics

Governmental Educational Organizations

Educational Non-profit organizations

Educational NGOs

International Educational Organizations

Which of course makes it a very long list, so I'm looking for people/organisations who are into more alternative/holistic/Values/ Global/Peace/Environmental education or even common old citizenship and who can also be classified somewhere above.

Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated especially people from (Non UK) Europe as I've just lost my European researcher.

Speakers at the conference will get free bed and board but do need to get themselves there. other guests will need to make a smal contribution to the cost of food and accomodation . If you also want to put yourself on the list then I'll happily add you, thought I'd like to get a bit of information about you first!

Thanks for your help:)

Sounds very interesting. Have you considered having an online conference at the same time? This is something the Education Forum could organize for you.
