Our 19th Annual Conference will take place on
Saturday, November 7, 2015.

The conference hashtag will be #p4e2015.

We are very pleased to announce that the keynote speaker for this year’s P4E conference is Dr. Alan Sears. Dr. Sears is a Professor of Social Studies Education at the University of New Brunswick, and the lead researcher for the citizenship domain in People for Education’s Measuring What Matters project. His research has focused on how children and young people understand key ideas related to citizenship. Alan will talk about citizenship education, where we see it in today’s schools, and the impact it can have on our future. You can read Alan’s Measuring What Matters paper on citizenship education here.

We will be posting more details about this year’s workshops and panel discussions at the end of August, and registration will open in early September. We look forward to seeing you on November 7!
