The Activator will provide attendees with the opportunity to engage in positive solutions for the international education sector.  

Each year, the AIEC Activator will take on a key challenge that is impacting international education and use AIEC as a platform to generate creative and innovative responses. 

During the conference, participants will be invited to participate in activities that encourage knowledge-sharing and collaboration. Participants will be able to discuss with like-minded people, offer solutions and work collaboratively towards achieving a common goal. 

The challenge for AIEC 2022 will be announced a few months before the conference. If you have an idea for a ‘challenge’, please let us know by email at
