The conference takes place biennially, with the aim of improving the quality and impact of astronomy education worldwide.

AstroEdu 2023 will bring together researchers, teachers and students from across the world to discuss the latest developments in astronomy education at all levels. Everyone with an interest in the field is welcome to participate.
