15–17 November 2021 The 6th Sino-Finnish Joint Learning Innovation Institute (JoLii) Annual Conference

Online

The 6th Sino-Finnish Joint Learning Innovation Institute (JoLii) Annual Conference will take place online during 15–17 November 2021, hosted by Tampere university, Finland. The theme of the conference is Education and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). There will be keynote speeches, panel discussions and paper presentation sessions in the conference. The participation in the conference is free for both the speakers and attendees.

Important dates and deadlines:

  • Registration opens on 15 June
  • Deadline for proposals/abstracts is on 31 July
  • Notification of accepted proposals sent to corresponding authors by 30 August
  • Full paper submissions for best paper award consideration (optional) before 30 October

The “Sino-Finnish Learning Innovation Joint Institute” (JoLii) is a key component and operational body of the “Sino-Finnish Learning Garden”, a framework for education exchange and cooperation between China and Finland initiated by both governments. JoLii was established in 2015, consisting of around 20 Chinese and Finnish universities with advantages in educational research, coordinated by Beijing Normal University and University of Helsinki. JoLii is aimed to enhance the Sino-Finnish education cooperation and exchange with higher quality through joint research, collaborative programs and experience sharing. Particularly it is committed to develop innovative solutions for education/learning and policy development in both countries and to address global challenges as well.

This conference invites education researchers and practitioners to share their insights and research findings related to education and sustainability development goals (SDGs).  Selected papers presented in the conference will be published in a special issue of the journal: Sustainability.  The Journal will grant 50% discount of APC to selected best conference papers.

In 2015, the United Nations (UN) adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, providing a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and in the future. The implementation of the blueprint is equivalent to achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the UN’s 2030 Agenda. This  blueprint has significant implications for education. Besides SDG 4: Quality Education, education is also recognised as the key to success of the remaining SDGs (UNESCO, 2017). While the important relations between education and the SDGs are widely acknowledged, there remains ambiguity on how education can effectively contribute to the SDGs (Kioupi & Voulvoulis, 2019) as well as how education and educational institutions can transform to better adapt to the SDGs (Filho et al., 2019).

The 6th JoLii conference invites education researchers from two countries, both with unique education systems. One country is China with the largest education system in the world, and the other Finland, with one of the internationally best-performing education systems. We encourage researchers from (with an interest in) these countries to share their insights and research findings related to education and sustainability. Expectantly, the scholarly discussions at the conference will not only offer research-based knowledge to support education and the implementation of the SDGs in these countries, but also help to address broader global challenges on the topic.

We welcome papers that contribute to the discussion from theoretical, methodological, or empirical perspectives. The papers may be relevant to educational researchers, policymakers, administrators as well as professionals. Specifically, we invite research contributions to the following tracks:
