Conference leads journey towards reconciliation – Wollongong

Wollongong City Council will host a Reconciliation Conference this week that will provide Aboriginal Elders the opportunity to guide early childhood educators and their support organisations as they seek a deeper understanding of reconciliation.

The two-day conference, 29-30 April, will foster connections between Aboriginal Elders and educational organisations by sharing histories, cultures and contributions.

The Reconciliation Conference will see key speakers address participants and facilitate discussion topics including what is reconciliation, why we should commit to improving reconciliation education in schools and early learning, the importance of Country, and understanding the effects of racism.
