Wednesday 18 – Friday 20 April 2018
Wellington Girls College, Wellington, New Zealand
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Educators, practitioners and supporters of environmental education are invited to submit abstracts of short presentations, short workshops, long workshops, or another format to be considered for the 2018 conference.
The closing date for abstract submission is 8pm on September 7th 2017, with no exceptions.
It has never been a more exciting & challenging time to be an environmental educator in New Zealand and around the world. Join us as we examine the challenges and celebrate progress and successes in the Wellington region, nationally and beyond, through a diverse and fascinating array of presentations, workshops, field trips and networking opportunities.
This conference will be exploring two core streams that support our ‘Ecosystem for Environmental Education’ theme.
The Ecosystem for Environmental Education represents the vast and interconnected network of individuals and organisations without whom our successes wouldn’t be possible. Throughout this conference, we’ll be exploring our own ecosystem and the ways we can nurture it to ensure its health for decades to come.
- Celebrating and Strengthening Collaboration
This stream will celebrate current collaborations – identifying key aspects that make them successful and exploring tools and participatory design that will improve collaboration between partners and the wider community.
- Expanding Environmental Education
This stream will explore and celebrate the contributions made by individuals and organisations that are not traditionally aligned with school-based education. This may include tertiary education providers, businesses, NGO’s, and private individuals.
