Making Creativity Happen How Can We Cultivate Creative Skills for All Children?


Each LEGO® Idea Conference features some of the most inspiring and influential speakers on topics related to learning and education and early childhood development. From young protagonists trying to change the system to established voices who are part of a deep-rooted way of thinking about learning and education.

We invite thought leaders, practitioners, researchers and social innovators to share their insights on new ways of learning that will equip and empower children to become creative, engaged, lifelong learners.

We will be adding speakers for the 2020 conference to this page as they are confirmed.
