Campus is an exclusive seminar for teachers. World class experts of various fields help teachers to understand what’s happening in the ever-evolving world, and how to explain it all to their students. Limited seating for non-teachers, register now!
Every year, there is a great number of high class seminars organized all around the world for corporate executives. The world is changing faster than ever and it is a challenge for anyone to understand what is really going on. Teachers play a more and more important role on passing vital and current information to the next generations. Teachers need to be on top of the recent developments in several fields from science & politics to economy & arts. In order to teach well, teachers themselves need to be inspired and to be given an opportunity to explore new ideas and new ways of thinking.
The aim of the Campus seminar is to help teachers to explain the ever-evolving world. The themes of the Campus talks range from neuroscience and eating disorders to economics and cyber bullying.

The idea of Campus was born in Finland, the top-ranking country in recent international comparisons on education. The two Campus seminars organized in Finland have been hugely popular, and they have created a lot of interest and appreciation among teachers. Campus is executed by Idealist Group (Helsinki, Finland) and organized in collaboration with the Consulate General of Finland, the New York City Department of Education and the Finnish Cultural Institute in New York.
