The International Positive Education Network (IPEN), The University of Buckingham and #iwill are bringing together the World’s experts in well-being and mental health for a day event on Mental Health & Wellbeing in Education. This event will explore the purpose of education in the 21st century. How can we best prepare our young people for increasing pressure at school and give them the tools they need to flourish in life?
Topics discussed will include: wellbeing, character development, social action, grieving, mindfulness, behavioral change, psychology, mental health, and international perspectives on wellbeing in education.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn, engage with one another, and explore wellbeing activities that they can use in their own lives.
