ABOUT US In 2002, the Worldwide Forum on Education and Culture hosted its first meeting at John Cabot University in Rome. With a focus on improving education throughout the world, 30 professors from five countries met to exchange ideas and perspectives on diverse methods of education. Since that time, the Worldwide Forum has grown to include dozens of scholars and professionals representing 28 nations. Four years ago, the Worldwide Forum released its first volume of work under the title Education Landscapes in the 21st Century: Cross-Cultural Challenges and Multi-Disciplinary Perspectives. This 450-page book, which contains highlights from the first six years of the organization’s proceedings, was published by Cambridge Scholars Press in the United Kingdom. A second volume was published two years ago.
