On September 19, 2022, the Transforming Education Summit, which was organized by the United Nations, concluded in New York. During the three-day summit, topics on digital learning and transformation spanning five action tracks and six calls to action were key aspects and hot issues for discussion. The Summit emphasized that we must take advantage of the digital revolution as a powerful opportunity to ensure that quality education can be delivered as a public good and a human right. The Summit also recommended us to utilize the benefits of digital technology to meet national and international demand for high-quality education and lifelong learning.

Since 2012, China and CEEC have established a well-developed cooperation mechanism, and these countries have gained a deepening awareness of the importance of long-term cooperation. Ever since 2018, Joint Virtual Laboratory for Future Education of SLIBNU has carried out a series of academic collaborations between China and CEEC to explore approaches to digital transformation, and has achieved fruitful results.

As a series of cooperative activities of China-CEEC universities, two academic conferences related to smart education in China-CEECs were successfully held in December 2021 and August 2022, which were organized by SLIBNU and the Faculty of Education, BNU and instructed by China Education Association for International Exchange (CEAIE). A total of dozens of experts and scholars from China and CEEC shared their insights on smart education and the latest status and practice of smart education development, which provided directions for the countries to further enhance digital literacy and promote smart learning practices.

Based on the above context, in order to respond to the initiative of the United Nations Transforming Education Summit, and to continue the in-depth cooperation between China and CEEC in smart education, the Smart Learning Institute of BNU, together with the Faculty of Education, BNU, will hold the 2022 China-CEEC Smart Education Forum on December 16, 2022. The forum will discuss the theme of digital learning and innovation in education transformation, and release the book Smart  Education in China and Central & Eastern European Countries and the keynote speech collection from Webinars of the regions in the past 2 years.
