History of Global Alliance for Transforming Education (G.A.T.E.)
In 1989 eight individuals gathered to plan a meeting of 80 “holistic” educators that eventually took place in Chicago in 1990. Out of this conference, titled “Creating a Common Vision for Holistic Education,” came the Chicago Statement on Education which was further developed and expanded into the vision statement, EDUCATION 2000: A Holistic Perspective.

GATE’s primary function was to promote this vision statement and to link like-minded people around the globe. GATE-Central’s function was guided by Philip Snow Gang.
