Water quality and quantity are very crucial for sustaining life in many parts of the world. In arid and semi-arid zones, communities are suffering from water scarcity due to population growth, climate change and lack of technological development. Therefore, education for water conservation and reuse in an urban setting is very crucial for sustaining life in dry regions.

The cross-cutting theme “water for life” addresses issues of water reclamation using extensive technologies, which are suitable for low technology and suitable for direct application in an urban setting. The utilized technologies will also be suitable for the collection of stormwater. The workshop “water for life” will establish a group of educators and researchers interested in using the topic “water” to enhance the awareness and research in environmental education and will follow the group established in WEEC 2019 in Bangkok. The subtheme consists of two parts, the round table session (90 min) and the follow-up workshop (60 min). As an output of the workshop, a subgroup of water for life will be formed.

The Round table session focuses on sharing the experience with the following topics (not limited to):

extensive technologies for wastewater and greywater treatment suitable for none-potable water reuse
– environmental education through water conservation and reuse
– water quality and natural water treatment processes
– case studies of water treatment and utilization for environmental education water cycle and the impact of human activities
– utilization of treated wastewater and stormwater for green city projects

Individual presenters are assigned to numbered tables in rooms where interested participants may gather for discussion with the presenter about his/her paper or project.

Short presentations (up to 15 min) are expected. These discussions will be held in English. All of the submissions will be reviewed.

From local to European level: a meeting in France for EE networks

The partners of the Erasmus+ strategic partnership programme invite you to a day of discovery on Friday 21 June 2019 in the Philippe Lamour area at Montpellier Supagro.

This day, open to all, is be an opportunity to discover the programme’s productions, share resources, discuss future perspectives…

In addition to the initial partnership of the project, we also welcome actors in environmental education and sustainable development from other European countries, including Mario Salomone, Secretary General of the WEEC (World Congress on Environmental Education).

Etres is supported by EU and brings together many training centres and SDEE professionals coming from 4 countries within a network.
The aims of the project are not only to add value to the ideas, practices exchanges and tools to be collectively thought on a local area.

BE.Hive: Climate Change Needs Behavior Change

BE.Hive: Climate Change Needs Behavior Change is a one-day summit to explore global climate change through the lens of human behavior.
Climate change is the most pressing threat facing our species and our planet. Human behavior lies at the center of the challenge. But it also may be the solution. At the BE.Hive: Climate Change Needs Behavior Change summit, you will learn about the latest insights from behavioral science, get inspired by the world’s leading environmentalists, be ignited by artists, storytellers and explorers, and tap into some of the most promising approaches for shifting human behavior to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Whether you’re looking to change yourself, nudge your peers, or move society,  join a growing community of environmental changemakers, behavioral scientists, conservationists, designers and thought leaders at this one-day summit at the intersection of behavior-centered design and climate change.
