Our 50th Anniversary Conference is shaping up to be a truly memorable event. The theme, ‘Learning from the Past: Looking to the Future’, could not be more timely as educational researchers have a critical role to play in enhancing the capacity of teachers and education systems around the world to respond to the climate crisis, and the existential threat it poses to our planet. The Conference will be held at the University of South Australia (City West campus) and will be a meeting place for researchers working across a broad range of educational institutions and settings. It is our intention that our conferences are safe space for well-established academics, early career academics and postgraduate students to find a forum in which to provoke debate, stimulate discussion, offer new ideas and share research findings.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 2020 AARE Conference
