Testimonials about previous editions

When you come back from the conference, you are not only more educated about education but are also more pumped about your job and eager to try new ideas. One of the best venue to be in.

Vishnu Bhusal- Young Educator, Nepal

I love IDEC because I love to meet my friends from different countries. This is the only place we can see each other, share our experiences with ppl, who really understand. Each year I meet new friends, new experience, new solutions.

Ira Branitskaya- Founder, Papaya School, Ukraine

IDEC is the best platform to produce good human beings with good prosperity and wisdom. I asked people in various places 'What kind of world would u like to live in ?' They said, a World without corruption, terrorism, social injustices and so on. I am sure this would be the exact platform for creating a better world... IDEC is seeding and feeding humanity. Let's make it happen everywhere.

Gnanasekar D- Children Parliament, Global Convener, India

If you haven't been to a place that people are kind, with lots of love and differences, you have to come to IDEC. If you want to meet the people who treat you like the family, then you should come to IDEC. IDEC is like a family reunion once a year all around the world; we share our experience, we discuss the Democratic Education, we talk about how to make the society better, we play, we dance, we sing together. I am addicted to IDEC. How about you?
