Early Childhood Australia Reconciliation Symposium

The Early Childhood Australia (ECA) Reconciliation Symposium 2017 will provide an authentic experience for educators to discuss reconciliation issues and create new ideas and actions that will make a difference within their educational settings and communities. Attendees at the ECA Reconciliation Symposium will learn about a culture dating back more than 40 000 years, and facilitated table discussions will lead to an atmosphere of dialogue, understanding and engagement between Indigenous and non-Indigenous participants.
The ECA Reconciliation Symposium brings the matter of reconciliation in early childhood into the spotlight and works towards a better future for all Australians.

Date: 5–6 May 2017
Venue: QT Hotel, Gold Coast, Queensland
