Family learning conference – Generations of tomorrow

A half day family learning conference on sustainability and climate change

 

Family Learning Conference – Generations of tomorrow: sustainability and climate change
20 June 2024 | 9.30am-2.00pm | Online

Learning about sustainability can nurture a holistic understanding of our world, helping families to be responsible and build their resilience to the changes that are needed to address climate change.
 
By integrating sustainability into family learning initiatives, we can cultivate a generational shift towards mindful consumption, environmental stewardship, and social equity. Family learning can connect families to new sustainable practices and technology, building awareness of new ways of living, green jobs and careers.
 
With knowledge and understanding, families can become active agents of change, fostering a culture of innovation, empathy, and collaboration that extends beyond their immediate circles. Through sustainable practices, families not only mitigate environmental degradation but can also instil essential values and skills in their children, empowering them to address global challenges with creativity and compassion.

 
Sustainability in family learning can act as a cornerstone for building a future where both human and ecological communities thrive in harmony.

This conference will give delegates opportunities to:

  • Explore attitudes towards sustainability and climate change and what this means for family learning
  • Hear about innovative projects that are bringing family learning and real-life sustainability learning together 
  • Learn simple actions that can help the environment and share tips for sustainable living that are easy to implement
  • Connect with other professionals to exchange ideas and inspire each other to make positive changes for the plane
