The Istanbul Education Summit, which aims to be the meeting point of institutions and stakeholders engaging in international activities in the field of education, is an international platform where education-related future perspectives, theoretical approaches and practices will be opened to discussion.
The Summit will take place in a global framework that takes into account education-related developments in the native countries of its participants and facilitates the sharing of experiences from different nations.
