RECE Global Conversations: An Online Discussion Series

Four Voices, One Conversation: Scholar-Educators Dialoguing in Times of Crisis
27/28 March 2024

This is an online conversation among four scholar-educators during which each will share their insights about speaking with children, pre-service and early career teachers, and peers in a world gone awry. How can we provide safety, comfort and hope for those in our care when we ourselves are often at a loss for words and understanding? What are the best ways to manage the swirl of emotions – confusion, crisis, grief, and despair – that are common responses to global events now and in the future? The goal is to prompt reflective conversations as we respond inwardly and outwardly to a world in which safety and joy have been breached for so many.

Land Education, Place, and Climate Justice in Early Childhood
28 / 29 April 2021

This event will cover issues and concerns with Land Education, Place, and Climate Justice as they relate to and are impacted by early childhood practices and everyday activisms. This conversation is a space for minoritised perspectives in political, social, and educational contexts to take root. Central to this discussion is embedding and foregrounding Indigenous, kinship and climate perspectives and relationalities as more than just some alternative, but rather, essential ways to understand the world.
