The 11th Learning Societies Conference will be held at Centurion University Odisha from Jan 15-20, 2019.
About the conference
In an unConference, the participants co-create the agenda together around what matters deeply to them. We believe each participant is a resource person, even children. We believe in sharing our stories, talents, and gifts from our hearts. There will be a lot of open space for participants to self-organize in groups around questions, experiences, experiments, workshops, play, music, dance, sports, cooking food, treks, art, etc., in the spirit of deep dialogue and friendship.
The gathering seeks to engage the heart, hands, head and home, all of our senses and sensibilities, for re-imagining our lifestyles and systems.
Participants are requested to join for the entire duration of the unConference so as to explore, express and nourish our creative energies together. This intergenerational gathering will bring together leading “thinker-doers” from around South Asia who are active in challenging the monopoly of factory-schooling and monoculture and nurturing diverse learning communities, vernacular traditions, intercultural dialogues, deep consciousness, and Swaraj.
There will be alternative educators, organic farmers, artists, artisans, activists, designers, ecologists and nature lovers, filmmakers, healers, social entrepreneurs, homeschoolers, unschoolers, barefoot innovators, grandparents, youth, spiritual seekers, and more. As with all learning societies events, the unConference welcomes families, youth and children.

The Learning Societies UnConference is entirely organized in the spirit of gift culture. We feel everyone is a volunteer, a teacher, a co-creator with many gifts to share to help build the larger community. The suggested contribution for the event is Rs 6000 per person (inclusive for registration, food, and accommodation).
You can contribute whatever you are able to from your heart. Lack of money should not deter you from attending or from full participation. Contact us if you have a difficulty getting there.
There are shared hostel rooms for 1000 co-creators to live together for 5 days in the spirit of community living. There will be local hotels also available for those who require them (at your own additional personal cost). You can also bring a tent and set it up on the campus.
There will be simple vegetarian food available, with vegan options. We are trying our best to source as much organic food as possible. There will also be some common kitchen facilities for those interested in group cooking.
