International Democratic Education Conferences (IDEC)

IDEC is an annual event held which attracts participants from all around the world. The key-uniting theme is a passion for putting the learner at the centre of the learning process. The experience of IDEC goes beyond the student-centred learning philosophies and has broad applicability to all manner of progressive, alternative and mainstream schools.

Participants have found attending past IDEC’s an inspiring, rewarding and in some cases a life changing experience.
