TEDxChampsElyséesED met en lumière des acteurs de terrain qui oeuvrent quotidiennement, à leur niveau, au renouveau de l'éducation.
Ces pionniers qui inventent une école où plusieurs voies d'excellence sont possibles, où l'erreur est permise et l'expérience valorisée.
Une éducation plus ouverte sur le monde, qui intègre la différence, valorise la diversité et cultive tous les talents. Un système qui encourage les élèves à devenir acteurs de leur apprentissage et de leur environnement et qui forme des élèves citoyens curieux, épanouis, créatifs et responsables.
C'est en valorisant ces pionniers que nous espérons contribuer à l'exploration de nouvelles voies pour l'éducation.
