This event involves an initial discussion of the question, ‘what is education and where does it occur?’. Following this, a presentation of videos will facilitate discussion of informal educational spaces and co-creation with people. An interactive activity demonstrates ways of co-creating with young children. The session concludes with a discussion of education as a subject for study at university.
The event delves into the importance of informal education in promoting sustainable good health and wellbeing outcomes, aligning with the sustainable development goals and respecting cultural diversity. We'll explore how education and educational research extend beyond traditional school settings, reaching into the everyday lives of people. We'll use videos featuring volunteers from St John Zambia as they support new mothers, showcasing how partnership and co-creation can make a meaningful impact on people's lives. These videos emphasize the authentic experiences of the women and girls involved in the research, highlighting the potential of collaborative, transdisciplinary efforts rooted in partnership and community empowerment.
This event is ideal for young people interested in education, the broader social sciences, or health and well-being. An interactive activity centered around co-creating with young children will broaden your understanding of education and its potential within the context of health and wellbeing. Attendees will gain valuable insights into the vast scope of education as a subject for further study and research.
