Hi Everyone,
Not sure if my previous post actually posted so in case not I am trying again...!
Just wanting to share information about the HeARTful Learning Conference  exploring how we can create gender equality in society through Early Years and Primary Education.  It's FREE to attend and happening Friday 8 November, 8.45am – 4.30pm at the Warrington Campus of The University of Chester, WA2 0DB

I was inspired by the BBC programme No More Boys and Girls - if they can make such a difference in 6 weeks with a class of 7 year olds, what difference would it make to violence against women and girls and poor mental health for men and boys if every child went through their education years in a truely gender equal environment, culture and curriculum?  How good might that be :)

This event presents inspiring speakers, creative workshops and an opportunity for those working in the arts and education to share insights, questions and learning around gender equality.
Keynote speeches will be delivered by GrahamAndre (primary teacher most recently seen in the BBCdocumentary ‘No More Boys and Girls: Can Our Kids Go Gender Free?'), Helen Griffin (primaryteacher, trainer and author of ‘Gender Equality in Primary Schools – A Guide
for Teachers’), and TatianaChemi (Associate Professor at Aalborg University,Denmark; exploring the outcomes of genderequal arts-based learning in education.)
