Cultures & Classrooms: Paris



In Paris, explore France’s educational system as you participate in local school visits and interact with educators and students from the community. Discover the many cultural influences that help make Paris an epicenter of eclectic flavors. You’ll also connect culture to cuisine as you explore community ties to food in France and across Europe.

Your tour of Paris will influence your perspective of the Summit theme—the Future of Food—as you come together with your fellow educators for a two-day Summit conference in Milan, Italy, July 8–9, 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.
