International Democratic Education Conference

IDEC stands for International Democratic Education Conference. Although it is not the name of an organisation or a group, members have sought to centralize connections for our events.

Each year the conference is organised by a different school or similar organisation that has volunteered to do so at a previous conference. We still firmly believe that the autonomy of individual groups in arranging their own conferences has made for exciting variety. Host an IDEC! Join the network! Welcome!
