About this event

Critical Conversations in Education

The past 18 months of the global pandemic have often been described as ‘unprecedented’ in terms of the scale and scope of rupture to our customary ways of living together. But the pandemic is only one among several acute societal challenges facing Aotearoa, the Pacific and the global community today. The Critical Conversations in Education series, hosted by Critical Studies in Education, seeks to explore what it would mean to renew the critical project in education and social work and beyond in response to such challenges.

Each of the four critical conversations will consist of short five-minute ‘provocations’ by scholars from Education and Social Work and the wider university community in response to a particular societal challenge. It will then be opened up to participants to respond to the provocations with facilitated questions and discussion.

Event 3: Can we engender sustainable thinking and futures in our work and that of our students?

Sustainability means different things to different people, and although this can be frustrating, it offers a space from which to launch discussion and practical action. While the idea that our societies and economies are in urgent need of a ‘green transformation’ is well acknowledged, the role that education and social work might play in bringing about such transformation is a matter of high contention.
