Congress Information


Welcome to the 2024 UWC International Congress, an opportunity not just to celebrate our past achievements, but also to chart the course for UWC’s future. Under the guiding ethos of the UWC mission, we are committed to reimagining our educational model to address the evolving needs of our time. With Education as a Force as our central theme, we seek to explore innovative ways to harness the power of education to drive positive change globally.

Numerous workshops, plenary sessions and discussions will offer a platform for aligning our priorities, energising our ambition, fostering partnerships and developing shared solutions to common challenges. Central to our discussions will be a thorough exploration of the role of education in shaping a more peaceful and sustainable future. We'll explore how the UWC educational model can be adapted to meet the diverse needs of today's learners, equipping them with the skills, knowledge and values essential for navigating an increasingly complex world.

As we look to the future, it's clear that collaboration will be key. By bringing together representatives from across the UWC movement and like-minded global educational organisations, we aim to promote greater cohesion and collaboration in shaping the direction of global education.

We warmly welcome all participants and eagerly anticipate meaningful discussions that will influence the future of education and contribute to fostering a more peaceful and sustainable world.
