Teachers energised at the most optimistic (and unique) education festival

Over 300 teachers affectionately known as ‘Flamingos of Hope’ descended on the University of Cambridge Faculty of Education last Saturday for #Flamingle18 / CambsEdFest / Cambridgeshire Festival of Education

The Festival’s Steering Committee and Organisers made big claims (albeit with a beer advert-style disclaimer) saying that it’s ‘The Most Optimistic Education Festival in the World, Probably’ and feedback shows the intentions were realised on the day

Feedback from presenters;

“It was inspiring, uplifting and inclusive. Fun, focused and festive. All credit to Rae Snape, the organisers and all contributors and participants. This is how education conferences should be. Congratulations.” Professor Alma Harris*

“Incredibly well organised and brilliant communication in the lead up to it – great thought provoking event.” Jonny Walker*

“I have never been to a more optimistic conference…I loved speaking and meeting everybody….Well done to you and your team. What a slick event.  Lots of food for thought and fun.” Amjad Ali*

“Of all the education events, the one with the most positive energy and camaraderie. Congratulations, one and all, and thank you for the privilege of taking part.” Lucy Rycroft Smith & JL from Flip the System UK*

“It was such a wonderful event and full of positive energy. I spoke to many flamingos and heard great feedback mentioning how they felt inspired and really enjoyed the festival. Thank you so much to all event team – for your enthusiasm, vision, dedication and energy to make this happen. We are changing the world for a better place, one day at a time.” Natacha Wilson, Random Acts of Kindness Foundation*
