2019 Conference Review

Summary

The 2019 WLSA Global Educators Conference in Prague, Czech Republic was a unique opportunity for delegates from all over the world to develop meaningful cross-cultural dialogue under the theme of ‘’Education for the Human Condition’’.

Over the course of three full days, breakout sessions and keynotes inspired lively dialogue between educators from across the world, all working to tackle the most pressing issues facing students on global and local levels in the 21st century.

The WLSA 2019 Global Educators Conference provided a global forum for educators, fostered important dialogue around topical issues, strengthened WLSA’s core values and direction, and gave delegates an opportunity to experience the rich culture of the Czech Republic.

"I am reassured to see that despite our different missions and cultures and locations that we share a lot of common issues that we’re all dealing with. It's so exciting to hear the different perspectives based on the different schools and cultures. It's like common problems, global responses and solutions."

Jane Fried, Head of School, The Brearley School (US)
