    My takeaway from Oppi is firstly that teachers are the best investment you can make in education, even with technology entering this space.

    Why am I here? Because teenagers have to be involved in building the future of education, we know what’s happening. Having us in the picture matters.

    Breathtaking and intense talk by Horace Dediu! Everything is taking place faster than ever: can schools keep up?

    - Timo Ahonen
  • Tim Walker, Teacher

    I left Oppi optimistic that schools here can dramatically improve. Why? Because owning your weaknesses is the prerequisite for meaningful improvement. This is a valuable lesson for all education systems around the world.

    It was a festival that celebrated education that cultivated the human mind and unleashed imagination to change our lives and the world. I think we need more forums like Oppi where people get together and learn from one another in joyful and enriching spirit. My takeaway from Oppi in Helsinki was exactly this important notion of togetherness. If we are about to make the world a better place through education, we need to move beyond conference halls and classrooms to realize the potential there is to make a change.
