“..the Dunedin study… is world-famous as a resource for psychologists, paediatricians and other researchers. Its findings even made the cover of Time magazine… ‘a unique New Zealand study’ that shows… how to shape children’s futures.” Phil Silva- Psychology Pioneer
ELF17 is about better understanding life-shaping developmental and environmental factors which affect how well individuals learn and work. The forum will pick up on the internationally renowned Dunedin, Auckland and other New Zealand longitudinal Health and Development studies and the implications for all those working with young people.
“Insights often arise at the boundary between communities”. Etienne Wenger
With the care system in New Zealand being transformed with the launch of Oranga Tamariki the Ministry for Vulnerable Children, educators are in a pivotal position to collaborate with others who work with children and young people and to draw on support networks when needed to enhance learning outcomes.
