Global competence is tested worldwide by OECD-PISA as of 2018.

The 2018 AFS Global Conference brought together leaders across sectors to set a global competence agenda for preparing students, educators, volunteers and employees with the intercultural knowledge, skills and understanding needed to create a more just and peaceful world. Partners of AFS Intercultural Programs for the 2018 AFS Global Conference were the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), UNESCO Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education for Peace and Sustainable Development (MGIEP), Yidan Prize Foundation, Teach for All, World Bank, and the Association for Teacher Education in Europe (ATEE).

The inaugural AFS Global Conference provided the first-of-its-kind opportunity for real alignment and cooperation among all sectors that have the need and the resources to develop global competence in classrooms, lecture halls and all learning and training environments that extend beyond formal education.
