The virtual Council meeting 2020 has concluded and almost 70 registered delegates made this new format a success. They took decisions and adopted a resolution on home economics education in 2020.
The Council also marked the start of Gwendolyn HUSTVEDT’s term as new IFHE President 2020-2024.
It certainly would have been nice to celebrate these important event together. And to hand over in person the Distinguished Services Award to 2020 winner Margaret ARCUS. But the “new normal” requires us to find alternatives. To let you participate as much as possible, we prepared a NEWS RELEASE (attached) as well as:
IFHE calls on members & friends to join the global conversation started by the UN to mark its 75th anniversary.
This anniversary comes at challenging times and the UN General Secretary aims to start a discussion about the future we want. We encourage you to share your perspective as a home economist, to share your ideas for building the future and advocate education & research on the responsible management of resources.
Today would have been the grand IFHE World Congress opening in Atlanta, USA. We dearly regret that we had to postpone this important event and networking opportunity for our profession.
Thanks to the committment of our host IFHE-US, we can look now forward to holding the IFHE World Congress 4-10 September 2022. Please save the date and don’t don’t miss this global event for home economics exchange.
We all are affected by the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic and have to face new, unknown situations in all areas of life. Exchange of experience, research and information are essential, especially in these times.
Therefore we would like to encourage you to take advantage of this special opportunity and submit your contribution to the announced IHJE Special Edition! Please find attached the submission deadline and requirements.
