QECSN Conference Information
Place and Play
Registration is now closed for this event
The QECSN conference returns in 2019 with the theme Place and Play. This theme has been selected to deepen our understandings of sustainability education in the early years. Place tethers us, and the children we work with, to complex networks of cultures, ecosystems, species, languages, laws, and materials. Play insists upon enjoyment, delight and creativity. The critical challenge for sustainability educators in the Early Years is to explore the affordances of Play in, through, for, and with Place.
Place and Play will be held on the 11th of May, in the city of Ipswich.
