Invitation

The Australian Association for Environmental Education (AAEE) and the 2018 AAEE Conference Organising Group invite you to join us on the Gold Coast between 21-25 October 2018 for our 20th Biennial Conference and 3rd Research Symposium.

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.

Through the Conference we will discuss the ways in which environmental and sustainability educators can respond to the environmental, social and political challenges we and the planet face though building – in ourselves and in others – capacity for change. 

With an already strong base of environmental and sustainability education participants, we aim through this conference to continue 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. We also aim 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.

Jo Ferreira and Cam Mackenzie,
Conference Co-Convenors,
on behalf of the #AAEE2018 Conference Organising Group.
