The Global Festival of Learning is our way of celebrating learning and knowledge. Although this is only the second Global Festival of Learning it is already attracting much attention and this year we focus on some of the more pressing issues that are being faced globally.We have arranged a fantastic programme of keynotes, plenary sessions and cultural activities, covering topics ranging from tourism & business, marketing, science and journalism, social interactions, and leadership and innovative learning. We look forward to engaging and sharing thoughts with colleagues and people during the Festival and experiencing the fantastic programme of social and cultural activities arranged for us by our wonderful hosts. The Global Festival of Learning is more than just an event – it is how BU works closely with our valued partners to co-create impact with communities and regions across the globe.
