You are warmly invited to our debut community event
An evening in conversation with Professor Pasi Sahlberg to explore the future possibilities of education in Australia, the importance of play in nature and the educational philosophy behind Green Mountain Community School.
Eminent Finnish educator Professor Pasi Sahlberg is the former Secretary-General of Education in Finland, author of two books on the Finnish educational success story, and now Professor of Education at the Gonski Institute at the University of NSW.
His latest book, Let the Children Play, is a powerful research-based argument for more play in Australian schools.
Joining him as MC will be Professor Tonia Gray from Western Sydney University who has devoted the majority of her academic career to examining the relationship between people and nature.
