Conference Theme

The theme for the conference is Ubuntu! Imagining a Humanist Education Globally. The substance of collective ethos captured in Ubuntu is shared across the African continent and beyond. The specific term was popularized by various authors including the novelist, scholar, and journalist Jordan Kush Ngubane in the 1950s and more recently by public figures such as Nelson Mandela articulating a society and world of inclusiveness and equality.

This conference theme explores an imagined future where education is a moral enterprise that develops and shapes minds to embrace humanism that is inseparable from socio-economic equality, which defines the world as a complex whole, an interconnected and interdependent ecosystem of diverse humans, nature and the planet. This vision of humanist education is in harmony with Ubuntu, which inspires a multiplicity of worldviews, indigenous epistemologies and ideological schools of thought in a world that is inclusive while fostering autonomy and humanity. It is conceived to guide academics, policymakers and practitioners and learners in different locations.
