Here’s a list of upcoming unschooling conferences all over North America in 2009-2010 with dates, locations, and websites.
Most of the list was actually compiled by Erika Davis-Pitre: she posted it on the African American Unschooling list: www.groups.yahoo.com/group/AfAmUnschool. She’s an awesome speaker who will be at many conferences including the Northeast Unschooling Conference near Boston in less than two weeks (!) where I’ll be speaking too!
I just added the new UWWG webiste and an inclusive homeschooling conference in Illinois (it includes unschoolers and all other homeschoolers) that’s happening in March, 2010.
All are welcome: these conferences are great for parents, kids, grandparents, people starting unschooling, looking for more unschoolers to connect with, curious about the philosophy, and unschoolers looking for support, encouragement, and inspiration.
Unschooling conference can be a great (re)inspiration when you’re surrounded by a “schooled” society to be reminded you are doing the right thing!
Please comment or contact me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you know of any others, anywhere in the world!
