The Australian Association for Environmental Education (AAEE)
is Australia’s peak professional body for environmental and sustainability educators. AAEE advocates for environmental and sustainability education and promotes best practice. It contributes to skills development among educators across the country and internationally, who work in government agencies, schools, businesses and community organisations.
AAEE supports these educators to stay at the forefront of environmental and sustainability education and behaviour change. It provides a network for the growing force of cross-sector environmental educators.
AAEE has three major roles:
1. Promoting the most extensive and effective use of education to help people to live more sustainably
2. Supporting its members and others in the sector via professional development
3. Building greater strength in local networks that facilitate collaboration and skill-sharing.
AAEE’s vision is to connect through education to advance understandings and actions in relation to environmental and sustainability issues across all communities and education sectors.
