This event has been canceled.

Campus is an exclusive seminar for teachers. World-class experts in various fields help teachers to understand what is happening in an ever-evolving world and how to explain it all to their students. Teachers play an increasingly important role in passing vital and current information to the next generation of leaders; they need to be on top of recent developments in fields like science, politics, economics, and the 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.
