The second edition of this virtual conference to learn, lead, connect, leverage ideas, and collaborate will take place between April 5th and 8th

Mumbai, India, Teach For India brings to you inspirED 2022, a four-day virtual conference that aims at creating a platform for all the stakeholders of the education sector. The conference is presented by Teach For India, in partnership with the University of Pennsylvania Institute for the Advanced Study of India and 25+ other global and national organizations.

Following the format from last year, the conference will lead to the convergence of students, teachers, parents, and decision-makers and inspire them towards action. inspirED 2022 will act as a platform for stakeholders to come together with their diverse voices and highlight the hopes of the children, the future that teachers envision and the support that all of us must provide at leaving the pandemic behind and subsequently, reimagine an excellent and equitable education for all. This year the conference is geared towards helping the general public identify the role of ‘YOU’, or how people can contribute and help rebuild the education system. This conference promises to showcase stories of leadership in education, spotlight innovations in schooling, and provide a collective space to reimagine Indian education.

“The past 600 days have been among the most trying for India’s children. The pandemic has forced us to ask really important questions – What is education and why does it matter? Whose voices must we listen to as we make decisions for our children? Does learning need to stop when the physical space of a school is restricted? In the midst of all of this, though, there lies great opportunity. And the answers to these questions hold within them a reimagined education. For instance, we learn from life, and we learn for life. So, learning essentially needs to get seamlessly integrated into life. The InspirED platform is a powerful collective space to think deeper about our roles and how we contribute together and help rebuild the education system.” – said Shaheen Mistri, CEO and Founder, Teach For India.
