International Democratic Education
IDEC - The International Democratic Education Conference is a self-governed conference where individuals and organizations who are educators, parents, and young people interested in finding and creating a path for learning in line with children’s own natural ways of living and learning. It is not an organization, but a community keeping in touch through a few common e-lists.
The first IDEC took place in 1993 in Israel, and since then, it has been in about 15 different countries on various continents, to make it easier for those in that region to attend.
