The School of Life Conference Barcelona (EB)

Ten years ago, The School of Life was set up to help people to answer some of the larger questions of their lives - questions about their relationships, their careers, their purpose, their state of mind, and, most importantly, who they are as people. In 2017, we gathered together all that we had learned to create our first ever Conference - a condensation of the best of our wisdom and teaching into a highly exclusive, uniquely transformative three-day experience. Hosted twice a year in different cities across the globe, The School of Life Conference offers delegates a chance to discover a new city, meet like-minded strangers, and embark on a journey of genuine self-discovery and self-transformation.

Day 1 Friday Afternoon - Emotional Education, Self-Knowledge, Sociability

Day 2 Saturday Morning - Relationships: Choosing Partners, Relationship Skills, Emotional Maturity

Day 2 Saturday Afternoon - Work, Confidence, Failure

Day 3 Sunday Morning - Culture, Calm, Meaning, Happiness 

About The Conference

Our conference is both designed and led by The School of Life founder, Alain de Botton, and members of our London faculty - renowned experts in emotional intelligence with a proven record in helping people across the world to understand themselves and find fulfilment. It compiles material from our entire curriculum - our core classes, one-day festivals, and five-day schools - to create a programme of the very best teaching we have to offer.

The Conference is not simply a series of lectures, or a passive presentation. Rather, it is a communal, multifaceted, interactive experience. It uses not only speech but films, music, and visual prompts to engage us with its concepts and message. Delegates are regularly invited to participate in exercises and demonstrations, and to share and seek advice for their own unique experiences.

Above all, the Conference is a social occasion - a place for thoughtful people from across the world to come together, share perspectives and ideas, and forge lasting connections with others. Specially designed conversational prompts, as well as morning and evening social activities, are used to encourage delegates to meet and relate. Many come away having made lifelong friendships - and sometimes even more.  

Though accommodation is not provided, the ticket includes lunch on the Saturday, a drinks reception on the Friday, and snacks and refreshments throughout the weekend. Delegates also have the option of signing up for an exclusive dinner with our conference team and faculty members on Saturday evening - more details to be announced soon.

What Past Conference Attendees Have Said

“It amazes me to be able to tell you that the conference exceeded my expectations in every possible way.  I learned so much, but more importantly, I met so many wonderful people”

“Contrary to my norm, all of the conversations I had were effortless and that feeling was so liberating.”

“I had never felt more like myself than at this conference and I feel so connected to everything the School of Life stands for”

“I learnt so much about myself. Things I thought I knew or had packed away in a box exploded: not fun but enlightening.”
