On behalf of ESSARP, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all the participants, speakers, guests and staff to the 2021 “Inspiration” Conference. This is our first online conference, hopefully, we will learn a new format by means of which we can reach many more people.

We want this Conference to be THE inspired Conference for all the reasons you can think of and because we were inspired while organizing it. We wish to inspire all participants in whatever role they have as educators to feel free to innovate, change, grow, create, and inspire others to do so.

This year we will experience another innovative change in the format, as ESSSARP is committed to providing a creative and stimulating atmosphere even at a distance.

Many thanks to Silvana Tejón and Denise Enright, and all the ESSARP staff that in many different ways are key to the conference running smoothly; to the Conference Subcommittee, the sponsors and all participants, each very important factors to the success of the event.

I trust this first online Conference will fulfil our expectations and leave us full of energy, ideas and inspiration for our future actions.

Enjoy the learning!

Marianne Vibart

Chair, ESSARP Executive Committee
