NSW Environmental Education Conference

AAEE NSW hosts an Environmental Education Conference biennially (every two years). Environmental educators young and old, indigenous and non-indigenous, government and non-government, community based and private enterprise are invited to attend and contribute to these conferences. Generous discounts are offered to AAEE members, and we also offer assistance with attendance costs through the Gould League Scholarship.

2019 Conference

The 34th NSW Environmental Education Conference is being run in partnership with Sutherland Shire Environment Centre, a first for both organisations! Our venue, Kirrawee High School overlooks the Royal National Park.

The details for the upcoming 2019 Conference are:

Learning, Citizenship and Activism for Sustainability

3 - 5 October 2019
Kirrawee High School

The conference invites exploration of how our education work can tap into and support responsible citizenship and a sense of activism.  We will explore learning pathways to being active in and for nature and will seek the participation of a wide range of community organisations. It will include a youth stream and robust conversations about sustainability journeys.

If you are considering attending, please read the conference framing paper. It will help you think about where and how your initiative fits into the purpose of the conference.
