Christchurch Town Hall to host 2020 conference
The conference is expected to bring in around 600 educators, architects, designers and policymakers from Australia, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific to share knowledge and best practice in planning, designing and building great learning environments.
Learning Environments Australasia is the peak body advocating for quality and innovation in learning environments, with a membership of over 800 education and design professionals.
Their work focuses on the design and use of engaging and innovative learning spaces and programs to improve learning outcomes for students.
“As one of New Zealand’s newest cities, post-quake Christchurch has drawn upon innovative design to enhance the sense of community and inclusion, so it will be great to learn more about how this approach can impact and enhance educational facilities,” said Learning Environments Australasia’s chair Deb O’Riley.
Delegates will be invited to attend study tours held at several local educational institutions tours as part of the conference, many of which are a result of rebuilding Christchurch.
