Naomi McLeod Liverpool John Moores University, UK
Naomi McLeod is at Liverpool John Moores University and teaches across Early Childhood and Education Studies. Her research focuses on working creatively and respectfully ’with’ people to promote young children’s participation and agency, through critical reflection as a tool for continued professional development for transformational change. This focus and the importance of listening has informed her most current research, involving engaging respectfully and reflexively to appreciate and understand the rich heritage of indigenous customs and traditions associated with early learning across the world. Collectively, this has provoked her interest in the interconnected nature of education for sustainability in early childhood.
