Email sent to GO-GN members and alumni on 3 May 2023:


Ahead of our forthcoming May GO-GN update, we’re writing with an extra special announcement… 

GO-GN’s 10th anniversary workshop: an invitation to participate

We’re thrilled to announce that we’re currently planning to hold our 10th anniversary face-to-face workshop prior to OE Global 2023 in Edmonton, Canada. The provisional workshop dates are 13 and 14 October, ahead of the main conference 16-18 October 2023. 

This special workshop will: 

  • Focus on the co-creation of output(s) 
  • Enable the sharing of research 
  • Foster collaboration
  • Be co-designed by participants
  • Amplify voices and research from the Global South 
  • Connect GO-GN members and alumni with our friends/experts community.

We will provide translation and other support, where possible, so that members can fully engage with activities face-to-face. We will also be looking at the possibility of virtual participation for those unable to join us in person. 

We welcome applications from all GO-GN members and alumni, and in particular from GO-GN’ers based in the Global South. 

What costs will be covered?   

GO-GN can cover the following costs for successful applicants: 

  • Return travel to Edmonton
  • Visa costs
  • Registration for OE Global 2023
