After a brief hiatus due to the global challenges posed by the pandemic, we are thrilled to announce the highly anticipated return of our education conference - "The Future of Education Now and Next"!
Taking place on our vibrant campus at Western Academy of Beijing, 13 – 15 March 2025, our festival marks a triumphant return to face-to-face interaction for educators and students across the globe.
The global conversation continued…
"The Future of Education Now and Next" brings together thought leaders, passionate educators, international school students and alumni. Collectively we will explore great learning and shape the next chapter in the future of education. The festival aims to inspire, invigorate, and empower attendees with fresh perspectives and actionable strategies that will evolve our educational landscape.

Our commitment to inclusion, equity, and accessibility

Over the past few years, we partnered with AAIE to adapt the festival and host online versions of the conference fostering a global dialogue among educator and student voices. In the spirit of inclusion, equity, and accessibility, we want to uphold that by ensuring as many people as possible can catch the festival's goodness! While we know that nothing quite matches the energy and creative thinking that can be unleashed when we are all together in one physical space, we are delighted to be bringing you #FOENN2025 online as it’s happening on campus. Watch this space for announcements and ideas for how you can engage remotely.
Real Impact, Real Voices, and Student Participation at heart!
Our collective participation - students, alumni, the wider community, and, of course, you - is crucial to making this festival an inspiring, inclusive and impactful experience. As the global conversation continues, we want to ensure that real impact and authentic voices take center stage. Stay tuned for more exciting details, including the registration launch, calls for speaker submissions, and other highlights that will make "The Future of Education Now and Next" an unforgettable experience!
