Invitation to aaee2023

We invite you to join us at the 22nd Australian Association for Environmental Education (AAEE) Biennial Conference and 5th Research Symposium, being hosted at University of Wollongong on Dharawal Country.

Listening to Country, learning together, transforming the future.

At a time when so much of what is happening in the world can leave us feeling overwhelmed, it is imperative for each of us to connect with our place, community, story, voice and sources of inspiration.

This conference will bring celebration, revitalisation, hope and empowerment to our environmental education sector. It will tackle questions on how we can be stronger together, look after each other and continue to accelerate environmental and cultural regeneration.

Delegates will leave this conference with renewed purpose, energy, skills, and tools to inform professional practices, as well as everyday choices, lifestyles and behaviours.

If you are an educator, researcher, campaigner or business owner learning and practicing sustainability as part of your everyday, come and join this conference as a speaker or attendee to connect, celebrate and collaborate.
