Noida NCR Learning City Unconference

The Noida-NCR Learning City Unconference was held for one day on September 19, 2015 in Noida, India. It brought together all kinds of people who are imagining and co-creating diverse learning communities, learning spaces and learning/unlearning processes beyond the frameworks of factory-schooling. We hosted more than 450 inspiring alternative educators, organic farmers, healers, artists, artisans, eco-villagers, filmmakers, social entrepreneurs, homeschoolers/unschoolers, walkouts, youth, spiritual seekers, etc. The day featured workshops, games, musical jamming, stalls, YouLead talks, Nai Taalim film festival, world cafe and much much more. The purpose of the unconference is to nurture friendship and trust as the seeds of future co-creation. The pre-fix 'un' is used to symbolize a deeper aspiration to journey together into the unknown.
