HEIA(Q) 2020 World Home Economics Day celebration

Since 1982, the International Federation of Home Economics (IFHE) has continued to recognise 21 March as World Home Economics Day (WHED). The day promotes not only the home economics profession, but also IFHE and the theme chosen for the year. In 2020, the theme is ‘Housing the Dispossessed’. For more information about the day, head to

Each year, HEIA(Q) chooses to mark the day with a celebratory toast, congratulating the King and Amy O’Malley scholarship recipients and reflecting on the previous years’ highlights. To celebrate World Home Economics Day in 2020, HEIA(Q) invites its members and friends to join us for an afternoon of celebrations, scrumptious food, and networking, along with an electrifying e-textiles tinkering session.

HEIA(Q) 2020 state conference?

No, not in 2020.
As many of you have gathered, HEIA(Q) will not be holding a one-day state conference in 2020. Instead, HEIA(Q) will host the three-day HEIA national conference in Brisbane from 28 to 30 September 2020, at the Brisbane Conference & Exhibition Centre at South Brisbane. Many HEIA(Q) members will be familiar with this venue as it has been the home for HEIA(Q) state conferences for many years now.
