Teachers are agents for change – in moving towards education for a bright future. Educators play a vital role in ‘the movement of society’. Clarifying our role and purpose in global change and awakening is necessary; as well as associating with allies and partners and moving together.
We invite educational professionals to participate in an inspirational evening about futures for education. The chosen work form (process) for the evening is a spiral-form. From broad working towards centred/focused. The purpose for the evening is to get from realisation towards action.
* setting (personal) goals
* forming (collective) action projects
* inspiration for education
