6th WORLD ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION CONGRESS, Brisbane, Australia 19-23 July 2011

Invitation to attend

The Australian Association for Environmental Education invites you to join us in Brisbane for the 6th World Environmental Education Congress (WEEC), to be held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre from 19–23 July 2011.

The United Nations has declared 2005-2014 the Decade of Education for Sustainable Development. The 2011 Congress provides an ideal opportunity to showcase how environmental educators are addressing pressing challenges such as climate change and educating young and old so that all are able to enjoy a sustainable future.

The 6th WEEC builds on a strong tradition of sharing the latest in environmental education theory, policy and practice. With an already strong base of environmental education participants, the 6th WEEC seeks to continue to share and build knowledge through a multi-disciplinary, multi-sector approach encompassing a diversity of disciplines and knowledges.

The Congress, titled Explore, Experience, Educate, invites participants to explore and experience the world of environmental education. Throughout the Congress, participants will explore and share new ways of thinking about environmental education, and experience new ways of doing environmental education. We aim to promote, through the Congress, the key role played by environmental education in developing and enriching individuals, communities and societies. In these ways, the 6th WEEC in Brisbane aims to provide a very high quality environmental education experience.

We invite you to join us on this journey of learning, sharing, collaborating and showcasing the best that the world has to offer our region and that Australia and the Asia-Pacific has to offer the world.
