About the Conference

The aim of this conference on Blockchain, Open Education & Digital Citizenship is to provide participants with an independent, informed overview of the application of blockchain technologies in education contexts. The conference will engage with ongoing concerns relating to blockchain technology such as sustainability, energy costs, open standards, and the various merits of public vs private or consortium blockchains.

This conference aims to facilitate a better understanding of how educational innovation may improve lifelong learning pathways that integrate personal interest, peer relationships, and achievement in academic, civic, or career-relevant areas.
