GRN Content Migrating to the EducationLinks Website
In November, all content from the GRN website and the Education in Crisis and Conflict (ECCN) website will migrate to the USAID EducationLinks website. This migration brings multiple benefits to members. While there will still be a dedicated space for curated GRN content, you’ll be able to search and find education resources and events across networks and topic areas all in one interface. New search facets will help you filter content by Learning Network. We’re working hard to get our pages set up and will share our new GRN web address as soon as possible!
