Burning Questions 2021

We're not a conference. We're changing education.

January 21-22, 2021, online.

Join us today - we guarantee more questions than answers


Two years ago, Burning Questions 2019 was successfully launched and gave participants the opportunity to question their educational assumptions. An event that dared to challenge our most fundamental perceived truths about education.

  • Why do we educate children in schools?

  • Is the purpose of education to learn about society or to question it?

  • Does education need teachers?

The aim of BQ has always been to maximize the freedom for critical discussion, learning from each other, and the exchange of ideas and questions.


No power-points, no top-down lectures, just participation, and reflection. Participants were invited to bring ‘Burning Questions’ of their own to the event, which were then shared in advance, collated, and explored throughout the two days. This was to ensure that everyone at BQ was a learner & a participant by bringing formal and informal learning into the same space.

Summer Transition Team

The team started to meet in July and has grown since then.  We have been passionately working over the summer setting up and preparing for this year's Burning Questions 2021.  Not only have we been fundraising and event organizing, we have also been brainstorming and planning how we can keep the mission of BQ for years to come!
