Wednesday luncheon with Dr Thomas Nielsen Associate Professor, University of Canberra

Guest Speaker: Dr Thomas Nielsen, Associate Professor, University of Canberra

 

The Giving Curriculum - The Missing Link in an Education for a Sustainable Future

 

Why is it, that the world has doubled its spending power since the end of the Second World War, but also seen a significant rise in suicide and depression rates in the same period?

 

Why is it, that countries can raise their PISA scores, but also remain at the top of the lists of countries with the highest rates of mental ill-health?

 

This talk will connect the dots of research evidence from several disciplines and let the answers to these questions emerge.

 

A member of the 2010 National Values Education Project Advisory Committee, Associate Professor Thomas Nielsen has served in several of the Australian Government’s values and wellbeing education projects across Australia.  He is invited regularly to provide workshops in schools for both staff and students, and many Australian schools have adopted his ‘Curriculum of Giving’ model as a framework for their whole school pedagogy.  Dr Nielsen’s research shows that giving and service to others increases wellbeing and resilience which is something much needed in a western world with high youth depression and suicide rates.
