The International Positive Education Network (IPEN) is excited to bring to you, at no charge, the online two-day global Wellbeing in Education Conference as part of the five-day Wellbeing360 Conference hosted by Tecmilenio University's Institute for Wellbeing and Happiness.
IPEN’s two incredibly compelling days are packed with the biggest names in positive psychology, education, and wellbeing. There may not be another Wellbeing in Education conference on this scale again.
Join us from your school, university, office or home and enjoy two days of keynotes, practical workshops, panel discussions and Ignite power talks.
This conference is truly for anyone interested in wellbeing education/positive education. In building the program we considered our audience to be teachers, school leaders, parents, academics and consultants in the education space. We believe that together, through positive education we have the power to change the way young people experience and view the world to create a more thoughtful, united, and flourishing 21st century.
October 27 to 29, 2020. The schedule will be run separately across 3 time zones to ensure a global audience will be able to access all content..
