Making it happen: Participatory citizenship and social justice - past, present and future

The conference will be held in wonderful historic city of Ballarat, which was the heart of the movement for democracy during the Gold Rushes in the 1850’s. It is now a hub for learning with many renowned government and private schools and extraordinary learning centres.

Date July 8, 2018 - July 10, 2018
Time 8:30am - 5:00pm

The conference theme, ‘Making it Happen: Participatory Citizenship and Social Justice – Past, Present and Future’ provides opportunities for us to make connections to learning areas of the Australian and Victorian curriculum: History, Geography, Civics and Citizenship and Economics. It encourages us to have debates about the cross curriculum priorities and general capabilities. We have invited prominent politicians, historians, educators, community members and students to engage in dialogue with us.
