QECSN Conference: Place and Play


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 – aspects of learning that might not sit easily alongside sustainability educators for many of us. The critical challenge for sustainability educators in the Early Years is to explore the affordances of Play in, through, for, and with Place. Leading Early Childhood Sustainability researchers and practitioners will be presenting on the topic Place and Play.

Presenters for this year's conference include Dr Sue Elliott, Professor Julie Davis with more to be confirmed over the coming weeks. Practical workshops offered as part of the conference program include arts-based mapping and creating seed balls. More information about the program, along with presenter bios will be released shortly.
