An inviting and exciting program is created by colleagues from Norway! It consists of plenary sessions presented by the key note speakers Colwyn Trevarthen, Sheila McNamee, Gert Biesta and Tim Ingold, and different (parallel)workshops and working groups.
Special attention is paid to working together with children, and to exploring ways to allow children to speak with their own voices in demanding situations.
