We are humbled to announce the release of Atu-Mai’s new youth e-learning module, titled Va.
 
This module describes what Va (space) means for Pasifika people and explores how we can nurture our relationships. Teaching our young people the cultural concept of Va will support them to understand the importance of relationships between people, their environment, and the heavens. More importantly, the Va module supports our young people to navigate the Va safely and respectfully within their own relationships. 

Considering our current climate, understanding this concept could not be more important.  
  
To celebrate, we are hosting the launch of the Va in our digital Va (space). The launch will include a brief overview of the Va module, some tips on how to nurture our relationships in this pandemic, and a keynote from Assistant Professor of Anthropology, Dr Tarisi Vunidilo (University of Hawaii-Hilo). 

Join us on Wednesday 8th December from 2:00 – 3.00PM.
