Some months ago, before the journal was launched, we sent out a questionnaire to find out what people might want from it. All the respondents were entered in a free draw and one was chosen at random to win a free annual subscription to the journal. We're delighted to announce that the winner of the competition is Dr Mariana Caluschi, Professor in the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences at Petre Andrei University in Iasi, Romania. Many people don't realise that there is a strong tradition of creativity research in Romania, in fact many of our site visitors are Romanian. Dr Caluschi is the author of several creativity books including The Small Group and Creativity andThe Creative Group: experiments, programs, projects both published in 2001 by Cantes Publishing, Iaşi. We're delighted to welcome her to our growing community of subscribers!

The nature of education is rapidly changing across the world. New curricula and new approaches to teaching and learning; the changing social conditions which children and young people are growing up within; the technical and environmental challenges we all face: all these produce extraordinary pressures on the values, purposes and role of education on teachers and young people alike.
All Our Futures is Aspire's annual conference for international head teachers. The programme aims to introduce pedagogical practices which are being applied at various levels in international schools by providing participants with exclusive, intense immersive experiences in schools and to generate unique, high quality insights into teaching and learning.
We hope that you can join us to develop our mutual work, our shared conversations and our engaged presences which will lead us to constructing positive visions for our future generations of children and learners.
