Information, Interaction, Impulses & Inspiration
Bavarian International School takes its role seriously as a contributing member organisation of the Munich region. Since 2017, BIS has presented to the public the BeInSpired City Talk series, offering inspiration and information to attendees around the topics of education, science, business, politics, media and society.
"Rethinking School - Innovations and Values for Bavaria and the World" is the theme for all BeInSpired events. From "Future Learning" (2017) to "Design Thinking" (2018) and "Positive Education" (2019), annual programming has featured a mix of keynote speeches, panel discussions and networking on specific topics, typically held at the BIS City Campus in Munich-Schwabing. The next event is planned for Thursday, April 29, 2021 under the working title "Let's talk values! Rethink school - from knowledge transfer to teaching values".
The BIS Innovation Summit, the original brainchild of BIS Alumni Katie Long '09 and Leo Peruzzi '09, first occurred in the fall of 2016 in Haimhausen. In the future, this event will focus on environmental protection, ecology and sustainability building on the foundation established in 2019 - "There is no Planet B" - and closes the circle on BIS' Eco-School project and our Green Team.
