The inaugural World Occupational Science Conference

August 18, 2022 @ 8:00 am - August 20, 2022 @ 5:00 pm

Conference Theme: Occupation and Society: Global to Local Perspectives for the Future


About the event

The University of British Columbia Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy and the International Society for Occupational Science bring the inaugural World Occupational Science Conference.

This conference aims to enable dialogue regarding the complex relations between human occupation and society, understood as a social group characterized by people involved in regular social interaction; sharing a spatial or social territory; and/or governed by the same political authority and dominant cultural expectations.

This conference gives voice to ‘Glocal perspectives,’ inviting submissions ranging from local to global considerations of the relationship between occupation and society, as well as for the future of occupational science. As such this conference invites a range of topics of interest to the international occupational science community.

The theme of this conference “Occupation and Society: Global to Local Perspectives for the Future recognises that all occupation occurs within context. Whether people engage in occupations individually or as part of collectives (e.g., families, neighbourhoods, communities), our societies inform our understandings of what people need, want, and are expected to do.
