The discussion preceeding the 5th Pan-Commonwealth forum have just started.
http://www.pcf5.london.ac.uk/themes/index.asp has links to the current discussion - looking at young people & children. The point of connectivity has already come up - in this case someone saying that Canada is much ahead of Australia in that field. ... both of which are countries with a significant first nation population! (Hence the "not quite off topic")
I've participated in those pre-forum discussions before, but a word of warning, they can be quite active!
