About the Event

Join us at Kerry Street Community School in Perth, Western Australia as we proudly host the 2024 Australasian Democratic Education Community (ADEC) Conference on September 21st – 22nd.

The ADEC Conference welcomes learners of all ages, along with individuals, schools, educational groups, and communities interested and involved in democratic, progressive, and alternative education. It serves as a gathering point for like-minded individuals to connect, share ideas, practices, perspectives, and stories. The conference is not only open to members; we welcome all those whose values align with or are interested in democratic education to attend.

As we prepare for the conference, we are in the process of confirming speakers and finalising a schedule. We will keep you updated with further details as they become available.

So, how does a Democratic Education Conference work? ADEC conferences have a unique flavour, featuring a range of speakers organised by the host school. Additionally, there are open spaces for attendees to co-create the program based on their interests, sharing what they have to offer and learning from others in the community. There will also be a range of organised and  child-led activities for kids under 12. 

A full conference program will be provided prior to the event, ensuring everyone has the information needed to make the most of their experience.
