Australian Association for Environmental Education Conference

I recently joined the Australian Association for Environmental Education so I can learn from other educators who’ve been down the same path.

I’m delighted to be attending the biennial conference next week in Melbourne – Creating our Next Courageous Steps.  It will be a four day bevy of environmental education ideas, covering all fields from pre-school to vocational and tertiary education.  Community education isn’t left out either.  In fact, if its to do with environmental education, it’ll be discussed at the conference.

I’m particularly looking forward to tomorrow’s eco-education tour to CERES, the Port Phillip Eco Centre and the Royal Botanical Gardens’ Landscapes for Learning initiative.

There’s also some great workshops on how to encourage community and students to connect to nature, a look at marine education, wetlands, forest classrooms, engaging businesses, indigenous education and using photography and film-making to engage students.  These last two are a particular passion of mine.  There’s loads more of course, but instead of me banging on about it, just check out their program online.

I’ll post some detailed articles examining some of the things discussed, so watch this space.
