For anyone who is interested in or is home-educating at the unschooling end of the spectrum, this conference is likely to be a wonderful affirming experience. How often are you surrounded by people who think and live at least sort of like you do, where your ideas are the norm? There are lots of great things for children and teens along with the stuff for the adults- check it out!
Jan Fortune-Wood, author of four books on nurturing children's autonomy
and living by consent, will be the key note speaker at a conference in
