What is APDEC
APDEC was born from IDEC（International Democratic Education Conference）. IDEC is the conference where youth and adults concerning to democratic education come together once a year. Participants share their experiences and discuss about the current issues. Through the IDECs, the participants from Asia and Pacific area want to have regional gatherings and more. We share similar situations more less than all the international situations and moreover, we are neighbors.
Open Space Activities
We want varieties of workshops, discussions and something interesting, fun and fascinating during this conference. We plan to have plenty of open space activities. Please join with your great ideas.
Open space is very important part of APDEC. Any participant can propose and run a workshop, discussion, whatever the one wants to do. For example, introducing own democratic school, a drama show, sharing experiences from one’s democratic school. Your idea is very much welcome.
