The World Positive Education Accelerator:

2nd Festival of Positive Education + Appreciative Inquiry Summit

JUNE 25-28, 2018  |  FORT WORTH CONVENTION CENTER, TEXAS| USA

WHERE INSPIRATION MEETS ACTION

BE PART OF THE LARGEST POSITIVE EDUCATION EVENT!

The World Positive Education Accelerator (WPEA) is the first of its kind—integrating the International Positive Education Network's (IPEN) second Festival of Positive Education with Champlain College's David L. Cooperrider Center for Appreciative Inquiry methodology. 

Similar to the 2016 Festival of Positive Education, the 2018 WPEA will elevate the inspiration and ideas of over 1,200 researchers, educators, practitioners, positive psychologists, agents of change and other parties interested in promoting both academic achievement and character virtue development.

You will have the opportunity to turn inspiration into action by participating in an Appreciative Inquiry Summit—a strengths-based and task focused 3-day design-and-build process. Be engaged as co-designers, across all relevant and resource-rich boundaries, to share leadership and take ownership for making the future of positive education successful.

If you can only go to one conference this year, the WPEA is the one!

The WPEA will transform what we expect from a conference. Moving beyond inspiration and debate, together we will design and begin to implement changes to education around the world.
