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) (not necessarily limited to Finland and China). Papers featuring international cases are welcome. 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. The participation in the conference is free for both the speakers and attendees.
