Conference theme: “Education for the Future”
The main theme of the 2023 JoLII Global Conference will be “Education for the Future”. The conference theme draws inspiration from the 2021 UNESCO report Reimagining our Futures Together, which emphasises the need for a new social contract for education to repair injustices, while transforming the future.
There are many global challenges in education, including unequal opportunities for high quality learning to all people, and gaps in the availability to new digital technology and learning environments. These and other educational challenges call for research and innovation, as well as global solidarity and international cooperation. The JoLII-GINTL Global Conference aims to be an arena for carrying out these discussions and sharing research and solutions to realise education for the future.
The contributions will approach various sub-themes, for example:
- How to prepare students for predictable and unpredictable changes?
- How is teachers’ work changing and why?
- How to promote policy and practices that equity and quality of education would be more reality to all children in the future?
- How to support education in conditions with risks of dropping out (e.g., rural areas, catastrophes, refugees, immigration)?
The conference will feature keynote speeches, thematic research sessions, panel discussions, networking opportunities, and hands-on workshops. The registration is open from mid-May until the end of July. Please register early to allow for easier estimations in the planning process.
The Sino-Finnish Joint Learning Innovation Institute (JoLII)
The Sino-Finnish Joint Learning Innovation Institute (JoLII) was established in year 2015.

The mission of the institute is to get Chinese and Finnish researchers, teachers, and companies to work together for high quality learning and education for all people. The shared vision of the parties was to establish the JoLII with the purpose “to co-create inclusive, student-oriented learning solutions for future in China and Finland.”
