Mario Salomone, Secretary-General of the WEEC Network and David Zandvliet, Congress chair 2017, would like to invite you to attend the 9th World Environmental Education Congress which takes place September 9-15, 2017 in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
The World Environmental Education Congress (WEEC) is an international congress addressing education for environment and sustainability. WEEC 2017 is the 9th congress and will feature the theme of Culture/Environment: Weaving New Connections.
The congress is an international meeting point for everyone working with education for environment and sustainable future or who has an interest in the field. WEEC 2017 will be an excellent opportunity to learn more about the latest in environmental and sustainability education, to discuss with people from all over the world, to share your own work and to learn from others. «We expect participants from a wide range of countries – say the organizers – and so invite you to add your ideas and energy to the mix. From the congress we aim to build a relevant network among environmental NGO’s, civil society associations, universities, local authorities as well as institutions from any level». WEEC congresses have received UNESCO and UNEP patronage and in many cases the presence or a message of the General Secretaries.
