It presents an opportunity for top level school leaders from all over the world to meet in Stockholm, Sweden and learn more about global trends and changes in school policy and education worldwide as well as focusing on local experiences and conclusions for school improvement. The conference offers the unique possibility for school leaders to reflect on their role as leaders between political demands and pedagogical practice. Together, we will raise important and urgent questions about changes in education, how to prepare our young for global and local challenges. In keynote speeches and in seminars we will take part of the latest and most important knowledge about the difficult role of leading a process of change in education. This is an opportunity to share experience and learn from colleagues around the world and to create a network for future sharing.
