Learning Planet Festival
January 24-25, 2021
January 24 is an International Day of Education. On this day, the international Learning Planet Festival is annually held. The conference is organized in partnership with UNESCO and leading educational organizations around the world.

In 2021 the Kruzhok Movement and Global Education Futures co-hosted the conference. The Protopia track was dedicated to the map of the practices of the future. The conference was attended by experts in the field of education, as well as technology enthusiasts and social innovators from different countries.
