IB Days events grow across the globe


Last updated:

The International Baccalaureate (IB) and local partners continue to organize a series of IB Days in different locations across the globe. These events connect private and public schools, universities, Ministries of Education and the local community to engage in growing the IB’s presence and sharing its mission in growth regions.

IB Day events are small-scale, one day, face to face gatherings that provide an opportunity for IB World Schools (IBWS) and non-IB schools to learn more about local and regional recognition of IB programmes, discuss new ideas, and be inspired by success stories. They are an occasion for educators to expand their professional connections and become part of an impactful learning community.

The IB and its partners have hosted events in every corner of the world.

Most recently in 2024 there have been IB Days in Ghana in May, Rio de Janeiro in April, South Africa in March, New Brunswick in March, Pakistan in February, Ciudad de Mexico in January. Last year, the IB celebrated communities during IB Days in Istanbul in December, Costa Rica in November, and Saudi Arabia in September, among many others.

The IB and local IB associations are eager to build more regional events to expand the networking and development of IB educators and communities around the world.

During IB Day events, attendees learn all about the IB programme, hear focused stories from IB teachers in local IBWS, and gain insight from community voices—including students, parents, and local teachers. The events often also include regional recognition insights as well as more specific programme-focused break-out sessions and workshops.

With more than 5700 schools in 160 countries, the IB counts with a global network of educators who develop students with transferable, future-ready skills who are ready to step up as leaders and contribute to their world. An IB education aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
