HEIA(Q) 2018 state conference
Home economics, mindful practice and planetary health
The 2018 HEIA(Q) state conference ‘Home economics, mindful practice and planetary health’ will be held on Saturday 18 August 2018. The conference is designed to inspire home economics professionals to embrace and proactively promote mindful ideas, attitudes and behaviours that contribute to personal and planetary health. At a personal level, living mindfully means thinking more deeply, more critically and more creatively about our decisions so that our actions enhance not only the way we live and how we feel but also the health of our planet. At a professional level, mindful teaching nurtures learning communities in which students flourish—academically, emotionally and socially—and in which teachers thrive, both professionally and personally.
Three internationally acclaimed keynote speakers will address mindful practice from their own specialty areas—health presenter Rob Edwards will challenge delegates to be more effective personally and professionally through mindful decision-making; and consumer psychologist Adam Ferrier and co chair of the Policy and Prevention Section of the World Obesity Federation Professor Boyd Swinburn will team up to explore mindful practice in the context of an obesogenic environment.
