Mercedes Mayol Lassalle, World President of OMEP, will serve for the Advisory Board of the EdHeroes Movement together with Safeena Husain, Founder and Executive Director of Educate Girls (India), Wendy Kopp, CEO and Co-founder of Teach For All (USA), Conrad Wolfram, Strategic Director and European CEO/Co-founder of Wolfram Research (UK), Osama Obeidat, CEO of Queen Rania Teacher Academy (Jordan), and other leading figures in education.
The EdHeroes Movement will connect individuals and organizations in a dynamic network and bring together their resources to address the most pressing challenges education faces in various regions. The members of the movement will share a common approach to solving problems in education, but will have the freedom to take the action required for a particular situation in a particular region. For example, they can establish a local EdHeroes Forum in order to get their agenda into the public domain and direct specialist knowledge and resources towards the solution of the key issues in their region. It is planned that the first local EdHeroes Forum will take place on October 16 in Indonesia.
