Field sessions: a new format for the 11WEEC

The 11th WEEC wants to be a bridge between the theory and the practice. In addition to parallel sessions shaped by researchers and scholars, we offer ten sessions, organized by nine Czech environmental education centers. At the field sessions, Congress participants may spend 1-2 days in urban or outdoor centers by discussing a broad scale of topics defined by the practitioners.
As a participant, you may engage in sharing your experience about environmental education in contemporary zoological gardens,  discuss the challenges of inquiry-based learning programs, get involved in the topic “Folk traditions and traditional crafts in environmental education”, or to the other fascinating topics.
Finally yet importantly, you may enjoy discussions in smaller groups of people of the same interest in non-formal settings and find new partners for your future projects.

4 field sessions will take place in Prague, 6 in the environmental education centers out of Prague, which also offers great opportunity to explore the host country. 5 field sessions include overnight followed by a trip with local environmental educators. Participants thus will have opportunity to explore landscapes, landmarks and tastes of Bohemian Paradise, Moravian karst, Krkonoše mountains, Brno and Bohemian – Moravian highland.

The field sessions are all-inclusive and the price covers transport, catering and the programme on site. Accommodation during 2-day sessions is € 29.
