Festival Team The IB

European Education Festival, Croatia 2019

The IB will host its first European Education Festival on 4 – 5 April 2019 in Zagreb, Croatia after the highly successful pilot event, the African Education Festival, held in Ghana in 2018. Building on that experience, we are proudly hosting the European Education Festival following on our theme "Leading and learning in the 21st century" and with a special focus on the topic "Developing responsible and Impactful learning Communities’".

About the festival

The theme of "Leading and learning in the 21st century" is designed for policy makers, administrators, principals and heads of schools and kindergartens, as well as leaders of educational institutions in the region.

The event’s overarching goals are:

  • To develop and enhance the capacity of educational leaders
  • To share and learn about global best practices in education
  • To enhance teaching and learning within schools
  • To create opportunities for dialogue and networking among leaders of education in the region

The European Education Festival is an opportunity for thought leaders in education to discuss current education trends, explore innovation in education practice and capture key developments in both education leadership and learning.
