How can I view proceedings (video recording, summary, PowerPoint presentation, etc.) from an event?

To view event proceedings for 2023 gLOCAL events, please go to the "Events" tab. All 2023 events are available under the "Events" tab. If you wish to view events from previous years, please visit "Past Events" (blue button found under the "Events" tab) where you can sort by year. If the organizers of the event you have selected have uploaded proceedings, a link will be visible in the right-hand column.  If you do not see an "Event Proceedings" link, please check back soon.

I want to participate in gLOCAL but I don’t want to host an event. 

You can join gLOCAL as an event participant! The calendar of events is made available online, before the Week, and from there you are able to review and register for gLOCAL events that interest you. 

Is there a recording of events? How can I access it? 

Organizers who choose to record events upload recordings and other relevant materials on the gLOCAL website in their event summary section. Usually, participants are able to access these materials a few weeks after gLOCAL ends.  

Can I get a certificate for participating in the event? 

Event organizers are responsible for issuing participant certificates. Please contact the specific event’s organizer if you would like a certificate. The gLOCAL organizing team does not issue certificates for participation.
