In the extraordinary times we live in, Wheeler Education is here to bring the world to teens – and teens to the world. Our programme offers a range of events that prioritises the voices and experiences of young people – on the stage, and off. In our dynamic and interactive events, we’ll hear from young people about the challenges facing them right now, we’ll equip them with the skills they need to participate in important public conversations and, most of all, we’ll celebrate their passions, their ideas, and their stories.
