Autumn Research Symposium: Education for Sustainability in Early Childhood: Making It Real

Professional development (PD) Wellington

Posted: 16 March 2018
Notice reference #: 1H9hyH

This symposium explores what sustainability means for early childhood care and education in Aotearoa. UNESCO states that sustainability “has to be integrated in all curricula of formal education, including early childhood care and education.” Sustainabilty means developing in the present, without exceeding available resources and without causing future harm. Sustainability is not just environmental, being also social and economic.

Symposium presenters will address sustainability in a range of ways, including key-notes, brilliant bursts and workshops  expanding our understandings of sustainability goals in practice in ECCE in Aotearoa and emphasising some of the cultural, linguistic, social, environmental and political implications of these goals for ECCE.  Keynote speakers  include: Professor Rangi Matamua speaking on: 'Matariki and early childhood care and education' and Marina Bachmann on: 'An environmentally sustainable present and future – our children’s right, our responsibility'. 

Registrations close Friday 4 May 2018 and are limited to 150 people.
