2021 AEDC National Conference

Trends in Child Development - The Future of Australia
15 - 19 March 2021

We invite you to join us in reflecting on what we have learned from four AEDC national collections and how those lessons can shape our responses to current challenges.

To enable us to connect at this critical time we will be holding the conference virtually, with opportunities to meet, communicate, learn, and engage with a diverse audience from a range of professional backgrounds.

The 2021 AEDC National Conference invites us to think about what is driving trends, what we have learned from interrogating the data, and how the data has shaped what we do to ensure all children in Australia have opportunities to grow, learn and thrive.
