Event Details

Event open to public.

Our Edu1st VESS team invites you to participate in our Fourth International VESS Summit in Santiago, Chile from the 24th to the 27th of October 2018.

In this event more than 70 Schools belonging to the VESS International Network, will share experiences, learning, impact, contribution and perspectives from their experience of building and consolidating a Sustainable Culture of Thinking.

Nowadays, there are more than 2.000 educators and 65 agents of schools around the world who are committed to build a VESS Culture of Thinking that transcends classrooms and transforms societies.

We have all been experiencing a process full of successes, fears, difficulties, and wise decisions that are worth sharing with others to enrich everyone’s experience.

Our Summit’s slogan is “VESS Empowers, Transforms, and Impacts,” as we seek to:

  • Encourage work and growth synergies within the VESS school network.
  • Create an opportunity for growth and learning.
  • Encourage open communication among educators as they share their problems and experiences.
  • Share our experiences with educators from other institutions around the world. Schools from Spain, Colombia, Chile, Peru, Argentina, Poland, Ecuador, China and the United States areinterested in attending because they desire to begin a transformation and will be inspired by you.
