ACE Conference

Planning is underway for the ACE Conference 2019.

The Theme for ACE Conference 2018: Kia Mau, Tāmaua te Aka Matua Becoming Global Citizens

In 2012, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said “Education is more than literacy and numeracy. It is also about citizenry.” Education for global citizenship shows us how knowledge, values, attitudes and behaviours help us to make informed decisions and actively take part in local, national and global communities to build a peaceful and sustainable world. Our whakatauki reminds us that the pathway to this knowledge comes from the parental vine and we must hold fast to this. This year’s conference will explore how community education can help us become the best global citizens we can be.
