International Conference 2023

Call for the international online conference


3rd and 4th March 2023, Danila Kumar Elementary School, Ljubljana

“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”
Albert Einstein

We would like to welcome you once again to a new international online conference entitled Trust the Quality Education of the Future. We are basing the 2023 conference on the challenges that will reveal themselves through the answers to the following questions:

  • What are the pillars of present education? And the pillars of future education?
  • How to restore/build trust in the quality when the world only strives towards production, success, and winners?
  • What does education have to be like to be able to call it quality education in the future?
  • What is the true value of education and what can the school environment give that other environments cannot provide?
  • Do we really want quality education? Why?
  • How can education follow the changes on the job market and adhere to the newly developing professions?
  • Will school teach students transdisciplinary skills instead of merely factual knowledge?
  • How will the school ensure that we will not run out of pedagogical professions in the future?
  • How does technology help preserve the trust in the quality education of the future?
  • How to introduce future professions to students?
  • How can we bring lessons to life and make them relevant to the students’ future lives. How do students deal with the transience of life?
  • How do we develop ourselves in the direction of building healthy habits and being role models students are glad to follow.
