Language & Wellness Conference

Join us in person on March 31, International Languages Day, for a full day of exploring language and wellness at the Six Nations campus. The conference will cover presentations related to implementing language and wellness, teaching techniques, hands-on workshops, and a keynote speaker panel of knowledge holders discussing language, wellness, and sharing words of encouragement. See the agenda below for more details. Additionally, participants will choose from one of four hands-on workshops to gain a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness of language learning and sustaining and creating personal wellness in the process.

Local organizations will be set-up for attendees to get to know about their language & wellness initiatives.

Swag bags, door prizes, and a catered lunch will be provided.
