Ever wondered about the origins of pupil voice and children’s participation in decision making in education ? Colin Ward (1924-2010)through his many books and other publications became influential voice in encouraging new ways of thinking about childhood and education that considered the importance of environment in development, the significance of free-play and recognised children as capable agents in their own learning cultures. His contribution was wide and varied but his two key books on childhood, The Child in the City and The Child in the Country are most often cited. The Bulletin of Environmental Education which Ward co-edited with Tony Fyson is best remembered by teachers.

This event, which has attracted a range of speakers from the USA , Europe and the UK will celebrate Colin’s work and recognize his continuing influence among scholars today working on a wide range of research areas that derive inspiration from his work.
