“(Re)imagining Pacific education sustainability: research offerings and possibilities”
This theme, “(Re)imagining Pacific education sustainability: research offerings and possibilities” encourages us to not only consider improving Pasifika/Pacific education but to do so in a way that is mindful of sustainability. It is an invitation to (re)consider education’s purpose within our changing contexts as a consequence of climate change within the post-covid context. We collectively consider what is meant by Pasifika/Pacific education and widen the lens to these contextual realities not being confined within the four walls typical of Euro western forms of education. Our theme points to (re)imagining the research offerings and possibilities that ensure our research-work contributes to more mindful and agentic sustainable educational practices and relations, appreciating our changing natural environments and social communities. Our collective belief of research being a powerful means to create this sustainable change leaves the door open to the possibilities and offerings that will feature at this year’s conference.
