What we do

Global San Diego works with nonprofits, academics and businesses with an international focus to promote cooperation and collaboration among organizations and to engage the public in their events and activities. One of the ways we do that is through our Global Events Calendar. Nonprofit organizations that join Global San Diego (affiliation is free for the first year) can post and manage their organization's events on the calendar at no cost.

Global San Diego works with affiliate organizations to coordinate networking, educational, and other events that help to raise the profile of the international community and of San Diego. View our organizations

Joining Global San Diego takes only a few minutes and affiliation is free for individuals and nonprofit organizations and at half cost for business organizations for the first year.
