Cultures & Classrooms: Barcelona



In Barcelona, explore Spain’s educational system as you participate in local school visits and interact with educators and students from the community. Experience historical sights alongside icons of Spanish art and literature—the many cultural influences that have made Spain the eclectic country it is today. You will also connect culture to cuisine as you discover community ties to food in Spain and across Europe.

Your tour of Barcelona will influence your perspective of the Summit theme—the Future of Food—as you come together with your fellow educators for a two-day conference in Milan, Italy, July 89, 2017. Hear from world-renowned speakers, attend expert-led workshops, and gain valuable insight into how food connects plates, people, politics and culture, as you explore the role of education in tackling global issues like the Future of Food.
