Home Economics can be a dynamic tool to create a sustainable future. But to do that we have to discover future-making tools and renew our communication with others and with each other. In 2012, the World Congress of the International Federation of Home Economics (IFHE), first established over 100 years ago, was hosted by Home Economics Victoria in Melbourne, Australia. As the profession commences its second century of influence, this collection from 34 international Congress contributors reflects the global nature of the profession and provides a platform for outlining what the future of Home Economics might look like. It clearly and eruditely shows that the promise of Home Economics is there for the future, if we work for it.
