GENE – Global Education Network Europe – is the network of Ministries and Agencies with national responsibility for Global Education in European countries.

GENE brings together Ministries, Agencies and other bodies that develop national policy and provide funding for Global Education in European countries. Ministries and Agencies participating in GENE combine their expertise through structured networking, sharing strategies, and a peer learning approach that leads to enhanced results nationally.

Starting in 2001 with 6 national institutions from 6 countries, GENE has now grown to facilitate the sharing of policy learning between over 40 Ministries and Agencies and other bodies from over 25 countries, through the regular GENE roundtables and networking mechanisms.
