Events – IGGP

We are adding more events – so we are trying to organize them by where we found them – right now either IGGP (from our IGG Partners around world) or MIGGS (programs put on by us) – as time goes on more and more types of events or events from other organizers will appear. If you wish to see ALL events click on Calendar, if you want a subset of the events based on organizer then you should hover over Calendar menu item and then click on the subset you want. We are trying to find as many program resources as are available to enhance your exposure to new learning options. A majority of the events are Free but a few have fees – keep an eye out for that.
