Guest speakers:

Tim Gill

For most of human history, the young of our species have played and explored out of doors as part of their daily lives. Yet today, these everyday freedoms are under threat as a result of profound social, cultural and environmental changes. Tim will argue that these freedoms are vital ingredients of childhood. He will show just why they are so important, set out the challenges faced by parents, educators and decision-makers, and discuss how these can be overcome. His talk will draw on his extensive research in Europe, North America and Australia, highlighting success stories and lessons learnt, and posing key questions for advocates in New Zealand.

Tim Gill is one of the UK’s leading thinkers on childhood, and an effective advocate for positive change in children’s everyday lives. For over 15 years his writing, research, consultancy projects and other work has focused on the changing nature of childhood, children’s play and free time, and their evolving relationships with the people and places around them. Tim is a prolific international speaker, author and consultant. http://rethinkingchildhood.com/
