We are very pleased that the programme will provide an interesting, thought and discussion provoking conference. 

7 September 2023

We have a packed first day of the conference which will be completely online. Dr Vandana Shiva will be opening the day.

12-14 September 2023

Moving to Oxford, there are three full days of parallel sessions, some of which are hybrid and will also be available to our online participants. 

  • Tuesday 12: The opening keynote will be from Dr Maria Balarin, GRADE (Group for the Analysis of Development), Peru.
  • Wednesday 13: The BAICE Presidential address, will be delivered by Professor Nidhi Singal, President of BAICE and University of Cambridge.
  • Thursday 14:  Our closing plenary will bring together a fascinating group of people. They are activists, practitioners, and change-makers who are passionate about education and learning for everyone, including vulnerable groups in some of the most disadvantaged areas. This plenary will allow the delegates to learn about the important work done by our plenary speakers and have an opportunity to dialogue with them. In this plenary, we will also have a chance to highlight and discuss the insights collected throughout the four days of the conference.
