CLOSURE: EXHALE

This interactive plenary session is an opportunity to synthesize and reflect on our learning during these two days. We will draw on some of the wisdom our keynote presenters have shared and consider takeaways and insights that inspire us all with a sense of hope.

You, our #OLE20 delegates, will be invited to share what were the most relevant and interesting revelations/understandings for you. Shifting from ‘attention’ to ‘intention’ — whether personal or professional — we will share our key takeaways as a community during a collective reflection.
