The Australian Association for Environmental Education (AAEE) and the 2018 AAEE Conference Organising Group invite you in Australia, to the Gold Coast, between 21-25 October 2018 for the 20th Biennial Conference and 3rd Research Symposium. The Call for Contributions is open here.
The Conference theme of Creating Capacity for Change builds on AAEE’s strong tradition of sharing the latest in environmental education theory, policy and practice to support excellent environmental and sustainability education and build capacity for change in children, young people and adults.
The Conference will discuss the ways in which environmental and sustainability educators can respond to the environmental, social and political challenges and how to build – in ourselves and in others – the capacity for change.
With an already strong base of environmental and sustainability education participants, this conference continues to share and build knowledge and capacity through a multi-disciplinary, multi- sector approach that encourages and enables a diversity of insights and practices from different sectors to be shared and discussed. The aim is also to promote the key role played by environmental and sustainability education in developing and empowering individuals, communities and societies.
The Conference program, which includes social activities such as the welcome reception and conference dinner, will provide an ideal opportunity to network with colleagues, old and new.
«We invite you to join us on this journey of learning, sharing, collaborating and showcasing the best that environmental and sustainability education has to offer» say Jo Ferreira and Cam Mackenzie, Conference Co-Convenors and organisers of the 8WEEC congress in 2011.
