The Global Association of Economics Education (GAEE)[1][2][3] is an international non-profit youth organization and community-based NGO[4] founded in 2017[5] that focuses on the empowerment of economics, financial literacy and entrepreneurship education for middle and high school students across the globe.[6][7][8]

History[edit]

The Global Association of Economics Education was originally established as the Indochinese Economics Education Initiative (IEEI) in 2017.[9][10] After 2 years of expanding across eight countries, IEEI incorporated in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as the Global Association of Economics Education[11] and has been recognized as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service.[12][13] GAEE is listed in the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis's RePec (Research Papers in Economics) database of Economics Departments, Institutes and Research Centers in the World.[14] It is also recognized as a CSO Partner of the United Nations' UNPP Program.[4][15]

Programs[edit]

GAEE's Home App[edit]

Considered one of the first mobile applications for learning economics, GAEE's Home App has been beta tested among its network of 1500 members.[16] The app is expected to launch in early 2020, featuring interactive economics, finance and entrepreneurship lessons for students both outside and inside its affiliated network.[6][17]

GAEE's Silk Road Plan[edit]

GAEE's Silk Road Plan is the three-phased action plan of the Global Association of Economics Education to "expand its network to 18 countries across the globe" and introduce "five thousand members" into its network by 2021.[18]

GAEE's Southeast Asia Month[edit]

The program is regarded as "one of the most innovative and futuristic education movement in the region" by combining various delivering methods, such as Training-of-Trainers (ToT), academic clubs and conferences, workshops and online platforms.[19] Focusing on the orientation of education to adapt to the Industry 4.0 era, the month-long program is hosted in Southeast Asian nations that are likely to suffer the most significant impacts of the fourth industrial revolution.[20] GAEE's Southeast Asia Month 2019 is endorsed by Association internationale des étudiants en sciences économiques et commerciales (AIESEC) and Vietnam Union of Science and Technology Associations (VUSTA).
