Dear Conference Participants,


We are delighted to welcome you to the 2021 Conference on Global Education of the International Cultural Neuroscience Society. 


This year’s conference theme on Global Education highlights the importance of global education and health equity in a global context.  Global education is important to the attainment of the highest standards of education in a global context.  The goal of global education is a chief priority in the development of nations.  Global education ensures quality of education and a lifetime of learning.  The promotion of global education contributes to the societal conditions that are important for health equity.  Mental health promotion that is equitable ensures the health and well-being of all.


There are three main goals of this year’s conference.   One main goal is to highlight the research in cultural neuroscience on Culture, Cognition and Aging.  A second main goal is to highlight research in cultural neuroscience and global mental health on Building Capacity in Cultural Neuroscience and Global Mental Health.  A third main goal is to highlight research in Cultural Neuroscience and Public Policy.


This year’s conference provides opportunities to learn about international and national initiatives for research and training in cultural neuroscience.  The conference supports advocacy and policymaking in recognition of the International Day of Education. 


We are truly grateful to members for their support. 


Kind Regards,


Conference Committee
