I am very pleased to announce that I will be returning to Australia in late October for a couple of weeks or so, visiting Melbourne, Queensland and Perth. In Melbourne, I’m talking at the new Royal Botanical Gardens Cranbourne site, just a few days after it is fully opened to the public. I’m also renewing my connection with VicHealth at an invitation-only masterclass for senior regional local government.
In Queensland C & K have invited me to an event at its new flagship Ithaca development site [pdf link] in Brisbane. I will also be returning with C & K colleagues to Mackay and Townsville, where we met local child-friendly city advocates in May. Then it’s back to Brisbane for a keynote talk at the Playgroup Queensland conference. In WA my hosts are Bold Park Community School and Nature Play WA. I will be talking to parents, educators and others, including a public event at the school. Other WA events are still being firmed up.
It seems that debate on children’s lives, freedoms and experiences down under is becoming ever more lively. I am excited and honoured to be reconnecting with that ongoing discussion. I am also looking forward to rekindling old friendships and forging new ones.
