This conference invites you to explore the place of children's rights, human rights and equity throughout the early childhood and children's services field – in pedagogies, practices, programs, policies, theories and research. Share stories of hope, challenge and/or change. Inspire and be inspired. Challenge and be challenged to make a difference through your work in the field.

We invite seminars, colloquia, papers, workshops, learning circles and posters that explore questions such as:

• What troubles us and what should we trouble to honour children's rights and honour equity?

• How can/do we act as change agents in our local contexts to make a difference?

• What are the limits and the possibilities in working for equity in diverse cultural contexts?

• What do we need to rethink and/or do differently to construct safer and fairer lives for all children?

• How do we/should work with cultural dissensions and tensions?

• How can we know the world differently in order to transform it?

We welcome diverse theoretical and cultural perspectives that challenge us to think and act differently.
