2021 Program

Inspired by moving local examples, resilience theory, and Mandurah’s relaxed waterside lifestyle, Mandjoogoordap: Changing Tides aims to showcase innovative, practical and effective tools to help us “change the tides” of environmental and sustainability education.

Mandjoogoordap is the traditional name of Mandurah, and means “meeting place of the heart”. The conference program nods to both the Aboriginal history of Mandurah as a meeting place, and our intention as a chapter to open hearts to a movement of change.

AAEE2021 will highlight this through the following themes:

• Optimism for a changing world
• Systems approach and resilience theory
• Showcasing community-led examples
• Education as transformative citizenship
• Future’s Thinking
• Exploring values-based communication
• Recognition of Aboriginal knowledge
• Respectful intergenerational collaboration
• Reconnection for agency of nature
• Technologies and education for sustainability
• Valuing an informed, diverse world

Our intention is to turn this conference moment into a movement by challenging old thinking and fostering innovation and genuinely effective action.
