New Dates for EWB 2015
In March 2013 the HCT proudly combined the Festival of Thinkers conference with the Education Without Borders conference, after feedback from international students that they benefitted greatly from having these two conferences combined. The result was a combined three days of knowledge sharing and growth between students from around the globe and with effective interactions eminent world leaders in education, business, science and academia.
We are now pleased to announce that this year the Education Without Borders conference will be hosted alongside the Festival of Thinkers conference in November 2015, so that the combined events will produce a further blended and homogenous version of these two iconic, student-led conferences.
The three days in November 2015 will build on the achievements of the 2013 conferences and reinforce the importance and impact of these global forums. We look forward to experiencing further rewarding interactions with and between students and leaders from around the world.
The HCT’s Education Without Borders and Festival of Thinkers teams will provide further details on this website as to the conference schedule and programmes in the near future.
