Engage in an ever-evolving dialogue about the topics transforming global education.
Bringing together Avenues leaders and the world’s foremost experts in education, Open.Ed is a global thought leadership series addressing key issues facing students, parents and educators today — with an eye toward their impact on the world of tomorrow. Through Open.Ed, we consider the world into which today’s students will graduate through the lenses of adolescent development, parenting and pedagogy.
Open.Ed events are hosted both virtually and in-person across Avenues’ global network of campuses, including New York, São Paulo, Shenzhen and Silicon Valley. We welcome you to join upcoming conversations, review previous topics, and share your feedback to help us shape future events.
