Countdown to aaee2021








AAEE’s 21st Biennial National Conference will attract over 250 dedicated sustainability and educational professionals from across Australia. An integrated virtual stream will ensure delegates that are not able to travel  will be able to experience all key speakers. We welcome our MOU partners as members from New Zealand, Japan and North America.

Inspired by moving local examples, resilience theory, future’s thinking and Mandurah’s relaxed waterside lifestyle, Mandjoogoordap: Changing Tides aims to showcase examples of people coming together to create positive change through environmental education, along with innovative, practical and effective tools for change-making.

It’s the place where sustainability and educational professionals can connect and learn, by bringing together academia, industry and leading professionals.
