Efforts, including exchange activities and curriculum development projects, undertaken by Pacific region countries in 1981 to improve intercultural understanding were the main focus of the meeting. The report begins with a very brief description of what transpired during the sessions. Papers and reports presented are contained in the appendices, which make up the major portion of the publication. New Zealand, Canada, Japan, Hawaii, and Australia reported on their countries' educational programs and practices. Reports were also made concerning various Consortium K-12 curriculum development projects, including the Ocean Project and the Antarctic Project. School networking in the Pacific region was the focus of several papers. A workshop dealing with the Ocean Project held in Honolulu was described in one paper. Two proposed units of study from the Ocean Project concerning fishing in the Pacific and bay and harbor Pacific communities were presented. Also included in the appendices are the agenda, the chairman's report, the treasury report, a review of dissemination issues, and a participant list. (RM)
