Welcome 2018

#GLD2018

On behalf of the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Global Education, and on behalf of our Partners, Crew, Sponsors and Volunteers, welcome to the official website of Global Learn Day.

Global Learn Day embraces the concept of “One Planet, One People” and we welcome and encourage ALL people to participate. From the earliest age, humans are learners. This Day is a celebration of that learning.

Our Voyage begins where the planet begins the New Day (in Tonga and New Zealand). It ends just east of the International Date Line way out in the Central Pacific exactly 24 hours later with “stops” in every time zone.

All along the way, we host compelling conversations inside the “Admiral’s Dining Hall.” Conversations that are lively, interactive, fun, urgent, important. These conversations take place over Social Media – Facebook, Twitter, YouTube – and provide a variety of relevant topics so that wherever you are at on your educational journey, you will gain something by Joining Our Voyage. We invite you to consider presenting your idea, your celebration as part of our event.

Every year our goal is to reach one million participants. Participants who love to learn and want to learn more.

While our Clipper, The Franklin, is wholly imaginary, we’d like you to accept that this is not an ordinary ‘webinar’; nor an ordinary ‘event’.

It’s a passage across all five Oceans where those “aboard” are as interesting and informative as you would find as a First Class passenger on any major Ocean Liner. It is an opportunity to learn.

The most frequently asked question is: What time is it in my part of the world?” 

Exactly what day do we launch? What day do we “arrive”?

We try to make this easy for you:

  • If you live in the Americas, from Alaska to Chile, departure is in the mid-afternoon, Saturday October 6th.
  • If you live in Asia, Africa or Europe, the Voyage begins on Sunday, October 7th.
  • The Opening Ceremonies will be in New Zealand, GMT 00:01 – which is one minute after 4 P.M, local time, in Auckland. (For the rest of the world, click here.)

Thank you for visiting us. More — much more – follows. Stay tuned.
