General description of the Event:


The VESS International Summit is a meeting place for teachers and educational institutions that share the vision of changing the education in the world, giving more importance to the development of thinking. In this space, Edu1st’s team and the schools that belong to the VESS International Network will share their learning experiences, impacts, and contributions from their construction and consolidation processes of a VESS Culture of Thinking. This is a space to grow, share, and learn together.
