“Pioneers are us” 

Hadera conference for innovative education


IDEC started 25 years ago in Hadera

For the first few years, it was called

Hadera Conference


This year IDEC returns to Hadera and it will host Hadera conference for innovative education

pioneers are us

This “conference within a conference” is a window for innovative, groundbreaking educators that do an amazing job but are not necessarily connected to democratic education. This is an opportunity for them to share their doing, be exposed to global processes, and be inspired by the outstanding spirit of the IDEC community.

You are all welcome to present your schools and projects at the Hadera conference in addition to what you plan to do during IDEC.

We will be happy to accept your registration here
