The last week of October, the International Positive Education Network (IPEN) offered its first-ever online conference. IPEN focuses on the application of positive psychology and related fields within an educational setting to encourage students, faculty, schools, universities, and communities to flourish. To present the Wellbeing in Education Virtual Conference, IPEN partnered with the TecMilenio University Institute for Happiness and Wellbeing.
Wholebeing Institute was a sponsor, and we enjoyed facilitating the after-event community conversations, too.
Our WBI community was well represented, with Certificate in Wholebeing Positive Psychology alums from around the world presenting, including:
- David Bott, associate director of the Institute of Positive Education at Geelong Grammar School in Australia, presented “Future Possibilities for Wellbeing in Education: Emerging Trends and Transformations.”
- Elke Paul, mental health educator and Wellbeing and Positive Education Consultant at Positive Education Training in Germany, presented “Time to Scale Up Positive Education: Greater Scope, Better Access, Higher Impact.”
- Juan Hoyos, deputy head and teacher of meditation at Gimnasio Moderno School in Colombia presented “The Positive Education Model of Gimnasio Moderno School.”
