In the view of the World Enviromental Education Day, a very interesting and relevant event occur in the Centr’ERE, Centre de recherche en éducation et formation relatives à l’environnement et à l’écocitoyenneté, in the University of Quebec in Montreal.
It is organized with respect for links with the past, present and future and with ancestral land rights.
These days begin the fall season of the Centr’ERE by highlighting three symbolic dates whose meanings significantly mark our relationship to education, indigenous peoples and the environment. October 5 will indeed be the International Teachers’ Day; October 12, the controversially titled “Discovery” of the Americas day, which marks very painful moments in history and inspires rebuilding ties with the First Peoples of the Americas; and October 14, International Environmental Education Day (ERE). These three dates mark out the course of a set of activities (seminars, round tables, conferences, meetings) offering complementary views on the past, present and future of the field of environmental education in the University of Quebec in Montreal, Quebec and beyond. Throughout these days, multiple windows will be opened on the abundant interdisciplinary networks between ERE and the fields of philosophy, anthropology, arts and literature, among others.
