ASIA-PACIFIC DEMOCRATIC EDUCATION CONFERENCE
Monday 15th to Saturday 20th July 2019
2019: Students’ Voices
APDEC 2019 in Sydney will bring together the democratic education community in our region to build on local, national and international knowledge and experience. APDEC will provide an open, inclusive forum for like-minded people from around the world to discuss methodologies and experiences in democratic education. Through creating a space of learning and sharing at Naamaroo, APDEC 2019 will enable learners, educators, policy makers and other key stakeholders to build on and enhance approaches and methods which value student voices.
The theme of our conference is students’ voices – underpinning our values of mutual respect, equality and listening to others, most importantly young people, as learners, leaders and as change agents. With a number of keynote speakers, open space interactive sessions and workshops, the conference will highlight and promote the positive impact of democratic education.
