ABOUT

The
Festival

At its core, EduFest celebrates the idea that learning should be inspiring, engaging, and offer something for everyone. The festival features no single viewpoint. Instead, it is a celebration of current ideas in education. Something to challenge you, to excite you, something new to try, to reinforce what you do well, and more! EduFest offers the chance to meet other education professionals to discuss cutting-edge educational research, as well as bold thought-provoking ideas in a relaxed festive atmosphere.

Be a part of the conversation - join us at Edufest Le Rosey on 31 May on our beautiful campus in Rolle where over 40 speakers will share their expertise with more than 500 festival attendees
