Third Liberal Education Student Conference will take place in Utrecht (NL) in May


From the 10th till 13th of May 2018, bachelor students from three different Liberal Education programs seated in Utrecht, The Netherlands, will co-host the third edition of the European Liberal Education Student Conference (LESC). They hope to welcome 110+ Liberal Education students from all over Europe to University College Utrecht Campus. Together, these students will reflect on the relation between Liberal Education and the needs of society, with a central question of the conference:


What does our changing society need from Liberal Education, and to what extent is your Liberal Education programme providing this?


Over the course of a long weekend, the students will engage in discussions, debates and lectures regarding this theme. The conference will be hinged on a number of lectures and panel debates from keynote-speakers. All students will write a contributions beforehand that will be discussed in small track sessions. Next to this, students will participate in several activities, case-studies and workshops that help them reflect on their own education programmes. Last, but certainly not least, all participants will get to know the iconic city of Utrecht through accommodation with, and personal tours from, local students.
