The goal of the panel discussion was to strengthen educators' and educational leaders' understanding of global citizenship education (GCED), a crucial area of study that can help to guarantee students' growth as independent, reflective, and engaged citizens of the world. 

The Global Citizenship Foundation defines Global Citizenship Education (GCED) as a transformative, lifelong endeavor that combines academic study with real-world application to help people develop a mindset of compassion for people and the planet, as well as to give them the global skills they need to take responsibility for their actions and create more just, peaceful, secure, sustainable, tolerant, and inclusive societies. In light of this, we posed the question, "How can we mainstream & develop global citizenship education?" to experts and practitioners.

The 18th Online Educational Leadership Forum featured a debate on techniques that educators may use to mainstream and advance Global Citizenship Education. Participants included K–12 educators, education leaders, parents, students, and youth.
