ECU Lecture Series

2 October 2019

Professor Mindy Blaise will discuss how conventional early childhood education methods can be approached differently, to help solve issues around environmental degradation and climate change.

Drawing from an ecologically responsive inquiry of children’s relations with water, she will show how encounters with the Black Swan activate new pedagogies that can extend reparative possibilities and alternative futures.

Professor Blaise, from ECU’s School of Education, is part of an international research team looking to re-envision traditional managerial waste practices in locally meaningful ways. Her interdisciplinary and multisensory project aims to change the ways children relate with waste, water, and weather.
