How do we reframe and sustain learning environments that honour diverse knowledge ecologies and cosmologies in a rapidly changing world?


Join us for a 4-day virtual conference to re-imagine and embody the future of higher education.


The Re-imagining Education Conference (REC) 2.0 invites new connections and deepening relationships that will 

transform higher education within and beyond academia. REC 2.0 is hosted by the Ecoversities Alliance with learners and 

communities from plurality of worldviews, backgrounds and experiences. 


We welcome you to this gathering of pedagogues, visionaries, activists, researchers and co-creators for an emergent experiment in collective learning in service of life and care for the planet.



We hold intentionality around emergence and openness to the ideas, actions and connections that will unfold at this unique gathering of hearts and minds. 



Learning is enhanced when we bring people together from different worldviews, generations, territories and languages. We can broaden our own ways of knowing by seeing what is reflected to us in mirrors we’ve never looked in. 


As we question, research, and nourish our imaginations, let’s continue to walk, weave, play, co-create, and become 

what we dream of.

Last year’s Re-imagining Education Conference in March 2021 brought together

over 500 people, 50 presenters, and 50 organizations from 5 continents. 


We noted that to improve the education system was not enough. 

We co-created a transformative space of connection and solidarity 

and re-imagined higher education through a diversity of perspectives and practices. 


In this second edition we ask:


How can we move from reimagining to building anew? 



What do these times ask of us as educators and allies of youth and young adults?



How can we mutually reinforce our capacities to take direct action, build coalitions, and become more effective in transforming education (eco)systems as we are living in a critical moment and there is no Planet B?
