ELG is proud to be returning as a key partner of Wellington College China’s Festival of Education in 2020!!


Established in the same year as the founding of the prestigious Wellington College International Shanghai, the Festival of Education is an annual event dedicated to fresh and dynamic debates, forward thinking, and stimulating ideas around education. Over four days, the Festival brings together experts in education from the UK, China and the rest of the world, who will present a variety of talks, lead workshops, and take part in panel discussions, that will stimulate thinking about education. In 2019, this successful event welcomed over 20 expert speakers who delivered more than 70 presentations, talks and workshops across Shanghai, Hangzhou and Tianjin. ELG was strongly represented, and is proud to return again this year by adding to the line up of excellent speakers.


At this inspirational event, speakers share passionately about their area of expertise, and encourage the audience to delve deeper into these topics. This is why ELG returns to the Festival with great enthusiasm – to bring audiences unique insights from our specialists’ point of view! 

In 2020, you should look out for some returning favorites from ELG. Can you guess who will be featured? Perhaps last year’s delegation from ELG will give you a hint! 

Stay tuned as we reveal the panel of ELG speakers for next year! 


The theme for the Festival in 2020 is “The Future of Education: Beyond Technology?”
