Friday & Saturday, October 20-21, 2017
The 2016 THESA conference was held once again in beautiful Richmond, BC, on Oct 21st, 2016 this time at Richmond High School. The theme of this year’s conference was “Home Economics: The PULSE of everyday living”. This is an extension of the 2015 theme, “The Heart of Education”, and also plays on the UN’s declaration that 2016 is the International Year of Pulses. The focus on a sustainable source of nourishment lends itself well to the philosophy of home economics, and spills over into the ethical and socially just view of everyday living that we embody in Textiles, Foods and Family Studies. We were thrilled to have Ned Bell, Executive Chef at Four Seasons and YEW kitchens and passionate advocate for sustainable food, as our Keynote speaker and as a presenter!
