Our conference has one mission - Share the message of the human spirit in the face of crisis.
Each country and culture has faced times of loss, conflict, and fear, yet through it all we can come together to overcome tragic moments. With our global student conference, we wanted to share the events of September 11th with a new generation of students and bring forward the opportunity to discuss how each of us can help be a better citizen for our own communities.
On Friday, September 09, 2011 six guest speakers shared their stories with classrooms all over the globe. View the archived recordings here:
Michael Sean Weinstock, First Responder Firefighter

Now we invite teachers and students all over the globe to share their own stories or create original products for our Inspiration Boards.
