GESCI is pleased to announce that it is now an International non-governmental organisation

GESCI will be launched as an international non-governmental organisation on September 29th at 12.30pm at the Internet Governance Forum in Nairobi. Please send us a congratulatory message through our home page www.gesci.org! The journey from Ireland to Kenya, where international GESCI will be based, has been a rewarding if testing one. The organisation was lucky enough to be guided by Jyrki Pulkkinen, whose steadfast objective to secure international status for GESCI never wavered. Jyrki returned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for Finland assured that in the weeks that were to come the final agreement would be signed with the Kenyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs. We are all grateful to the Kenyan government for their willingness to forge this momentous partnership with GESCI and we look forward to continuing our work with our host government over the years to come. Jerome Morrissey has taken over from Jyrki, making the transition from Founding Director of The National Centre for Technology in Education in Ireland, to Chief Executive Officer of GESCI. continue reading >
