From learning how to spread an innovation to 100 countries, to debating whether students can change the world if adults cannot, to discovering the experience of building a Finnish preschool in China – this year's Summit will explore the biggest, most innovative themes in education!

World's most inspiring education innovators gather in Helsinki

We're gearing up to host the annual HundrED Innovation Summit in Helsinki this fall, where we'll launch HundrED's Global Innovation Collection 2019! This invite-only event brings together the most inspiring education innovators, educators, youth and other engaged stakeholders from across the world to celebrate innovation in education on a global scale. It's all about sharing ideas, forging connections and building a movement. 

About the summit

The HundrED Innovation Summit is a 3-day celebration of education innovation, with talks, workshops, and discussions. Each year the jam-packed program is built around the innovators who will be attending and every innovator gets the opportunity to get up on stage and share their work! The first draft of the program for this year's event has now been updated! Have a look!

The summit is free to attend for all invited and all refreshments will be provided, including celebratory dinners for the innovators. However, please note that HundrED is not able to cover the cost of travel or accommodation. If you need help with organizing travel, including help with visas, please get in touch and we'll be happy to help! 

Want to attend?

We'll be announcing the 2019 HundrED Global Collection of Inspiring Innovations at the summit, so each selected innovation will receive an invitation for two people to attend. 

This invite-only event is capped at 220 attendees and a small number of places will be available to other stakeholders in education. If you're interested in being involved, please send us a request detailing why you'd like to attend.

In Helsinki

One of the world's northernmost capitals, Helsinki is an exciting city with visible intersections amongst minimal Scandinavian design, art museums, and cozy cafés. Just 456 km from St. Petersburg, the city is also where east meets west. Mixed in with Art Noveau architecture, Russian-built neoclassical churches remind visitors that Helsinki was once ruled by Czar Alexander I. Today, visitors flock to Helsinki for the beautiful, harbor-side location and the eclectic mix of old churches, modern museums, and pleasant parks. (Not to mention the Finnish saunas!)

Helsinki was also chosen as World Design Capital for the year 2012. In 2014 Helsinki was awarded City of Design status as part of the Creative Cities Network established by UNESCO.
