International Education Week (IEW) is an annual, week-long event celebrated during the third week of November by over 85 countries around the world. IEW is an initiative under the Council of Minister of Education, Canada and is recognized by other provincial/territorial governments and various non-governmental organizations active in international education.

IEW provides an opportunity to celebrate and showcase the rich variety of innovative programs and activities that expose students to an international dimension; enriching their learning and preparing them for global citizenship.

Alberta Education has actively participated in IEW since 2006 and a Provincial International Education Week Committee was created in December 2010 to further raise the awareness of IEW across the province.

For IEW 2012, students in Grades 5 to 12 are invited to participate in The Think Globally Poetry Contest:The Power of Voice to communicate their thoughts on why it is important to be connected with the world and how international education can help us get connected. Contest details can be found in the Teacher's Guide to the Think Globally Poetry Contest, which can also be accessed in the Promotional Material section and the Speak Out website.

In addition to the poetry contest, the Provincial International Education Week Committee has developed several items for you to use to celebrate IEW across Alberta and to communicate the importance of international education. Make sure to check out the Toolkit, interesting international education initiatives taking place in our province, and a fact sheet. These items are also available in French and can be found along with the IEW logos in the Promotional Material section.

Make sure to also check out the Speak Out online discussion board in October, where Alberta youth can share their ideas about international education and global engagement.
