Kia ora koutou and welcome to CHESS 2018

We are excited to be hosting this new conference. Our vision is to provide a space for discussion, debate, research, theory and networking among international scholars who wish to contest dominant discourses of health in education, and imagine alternate theories, practices and ways of being.

The conference will be interactive, creative and discussion-based. We want the best international scholars and practitioners in the field to give provocative presentations and engage in meaningful dialogue across disciplinary perspectives. The conference values ako (teaching and learning), hauora (well being), whanaungatanga (relationships and connection), wero (challenge), and taiao (the natural environment).

We very much look forward to meeting with you in Queenstown in 2018!
