Kia ora Koutou,

Many thanks to all of you who attended and contributed to the very successful PATT27 conference. Thanks to the high quality of the presentations and the amazing Christchurch weather a great time was had by all. A special thanks to presenters. The Powerpoint files (saved as PDF files) from the presentations are now attached to this site and you can also download the Conference Proceedings (PDF, 7.8MB).

What was apparent from the conference papers was the wide interpretation and scope of understanding in terms of sustainability within technology education, which is only to be expected and hoped for by the conference organisers.

As conference organiser I really appreciated you coming to Christchurch to support our broken city and the many kind comments we received regarding our rebuild and future.

Looking forward to seeing you at our next PATT conference in Marseille in April 2015 if not before.

Nga mihi nui
With best wishes
Dr Wendy Fox-Turnbull
Conference Convenor


Presentations are now available to view here.

Thank you again to all who presented at PATT27.
