Thank you for your support of the Positive Education Schools Association, Australia's Positive Education peak body.

PESA's mission is to lead, promote, and foster the implementation and development of Positive Education, to support all students, schools and the wider community to flourish. 
Planning is well underway for our 2020 Australasian Wellbeing in Education Conference, which will run from 2-4 April at ICC, Darling Harbour, NSW, Australia.

The conference theme is Bridging Theory, Research and Application and we'll be providing delegates with a rich program featuring new research, best practice and practical ideas for application and implementation in their own schools.
We are now seeking submissions for workshop and 'Inspire' session presentations at this Conference.
We would love to hear from you if you are keen to share your expertise, insights and experience on Positive Education, and student, staff and wider-community wellbeing.  
Workshops will run as 50-minute ‘deep-dives’ with one or two presenters. We encourage interactive formats, focusing on practical interventions and applied aspects of Positive Psychology which may impact on student, staff or community wellbeing.
Inspire Sessions
These will be rapid-fire 6-minute presentations, focusing on one or two ideas or initiatives that have been successful in your context.  We will run 7 of these sessions concurrently within a 50 minute timeslot, across four streams.

Suggested topics for workshops or inspire sessions include the following – but this is by no means an exhaustive list and we’d be delighted to hear your ideas!

> Positive Education and technology
> Supporting staff wellbeing
> Positive Psychology Coaching
> How Positive Education informs best-practice teaching
> Positive Education on a shoestring
> Systems Informed Positive Education
> Positive Education meets pastoral care
> Fostering an environment of belonging
> Positive Education in LGBTI communities
> Sustaining a culture of wellbeing in your school
> Social media and Positive Education
> Positive Education in indigenous or diverse communities
> Positive Education in action
> Positive Education in Early Childhood Classrooms
> Positive Education in Tertiary Environments
