    During this Third Australasian Occupational Science Symposium, some thought provoking presentations gave cause for reflection on some challenging occupational issues. These included the occupation/identity nexus and its relationship to happiness; the complexities of time perceptions and time use from historical, indigenous, gender related and demographic perspectives; the relationship between objects and occupations in a consumerist Western context; the impact that globalisation can have on discrete groups of people; and, how reconsideration of the ideals of community from the past can help us create environments that stimulate, rather than hinder, the realisation of occupational potential.
