Welcome to IDEC2024: A feast of education, woven together by you.

This is not just a conference; this is a revolution in education.

At IDEC, we leave traditional educational frameworks behind and embark on a journey of exploration, mutual growth, and expanding our horizons for both our children and ourselves. This is an open space where you are free to speak out, host workshops, participate in activities, and join hands with global partners.

In IDEC, every participant is the protagonist of this grand event.

Forget the monotonous lectures and the competitive seminars. IDEC is a unique experience held in alternative schools, emphasizing equal human interaction, breaking down barriers of identity, and allowing every participant to interact and make friends freely.

Enthusiasts from all five continents interested in "Democracy, Sustainability, Education, and International Exchange" are welcome to join, regardless of age or background. We welcome all who are passionate about education to join this feast.

"How can one lead students to freedom without having experienced freedom themselves?"

Together with ageless friends from different cultures, through equal exchanges and sharing, this burden-free experience of freedom will open up new vistas beyond your existing "choices in education" and rekindle the excitement of being a "learner."
