About the Summit
The First 1000 Days Australia Summit is a three-day event that brings together early life educators, community organisations, social workers, researchers, entrepreneurs, policy makers and others aligned with the First 1000 Days Australian model.
Abstracts on Indigenous-led and conceived of, evidence-based research and interventions that address children’s needs from pre?conception to two years of age, thereby laying the best foundation for their future health and wellbeing are invited.
Presentations and workshops will address areas including caring and parenting, infant and child development, family strengthening, implementation and translation, entrepreneurship and governance in this area.
About the Short Course
The two-day Introduction to the First 1000 Days Australia Short Course presents the overall objectives of First 1000 Days Australia – to provide a coordinated, comprehensive intervention addressing the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children from pre-conception to two years of age, thereby laying the foundation for their future health and wellbeing.
Through a mix of presentations, group work and case studies, the course will explore how the First 1000 Days Australia Model can be established and implemented across different Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities Australia-wide in partnership with the University of Melbourne and Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations.
