Thriving, not surviving

Register your interest to receive updates

As always, the HEIA(Q) state conference endeavours to address current and topical issues and this year will be no different with the theme, Towards Global Competence. While the United Nations Sustainable Goals are a priority area for all home economics practitioners, the concept of global competence overarches, supports and strengthens achievement of these goals. Global competence can be defined as the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours to thrive in today’s interconnected world. It includes examining local, global and intercultural issues; understanding and appreciating different perspectives and world views of others; engaging in open, appropriate and effective interactions across cultures; and taking action for collective wellbeing and sustainable development.  The HEIA(Q) 2022 conference will explore how to thrive and not just survive; explore those aspects of global competence that are most pertinent to home economics practitioners; and encourage a culture of uniting, working together and supporting each other in the interests of these pursuits. Achieving global competence is a collective work in action, which if achieved, will be our legacy to future generations as they navigate the second half of the 21st century.

  • explore how to thrive and not just survive
