The International Student Innovation Forum 2020 (ISIF2020) brings together junior and senior high school students from around the world to engage in dialogue about their shared challenges and exploring school well-being, which can respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and create future looking learning systems, eventually a future school, to meet the needs of the 21st century. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ISIF2020 will be held online. Even though it is virtually organized, we focus on lively interactions among participants and genuine learning resonating agency of each participant. One unique feature of ISIF2020 is that students create the forum together with peers and adults reflecting on their voices with everyone exercising co-agency. The discussion outcomes from ISIF2020 on school well-being shall be a result of collective efforts of diverse participating members with students in the center of planning and interactions.
Let’s explore School Well-being!

About the logo
About 100 students in the Tohoku region stood up with the aim of rebuilding the Tohoku region,
OECD has started work on redefining the key competencies.
The Japanese government has started reforming the national curriculum. The OECD Tohoku School has been transformed into the Innovative Schools Network 2030, with broader participants in Japan and in the world.
The era when we could say “If you know this, you can always manage” or “If you follow the rules you will succeed” is over. While changes in society accelerate, schools are left behind. The gap becomes bigger.
What the Learning Compass points to is a society with individual and collective well-being. The form of well-being varies depending on the country, ethnicity, age, sex, religion, and disparity in wealth; however, we can shorten the distance to the goal of creating a society with collective well-being, by talking with diverse people. Learning about each other means growing together. It leads us to a better well-being.
We look forward to meeting you at the forum.
