Our Organisation

About us

AAEE is Australia's peak professional body for Environmental Educators.

Our members work in government agencies, schools, businesses and community organisations.

As an organisation, we:

  • Advocate for Environmental Education and promote best practice.
  • Support and contribute to skills development among educators across Australia and internationally.
  • Help our Association members to stay at the forefront of sustainability education and behaviour change.
  • Provide a network for cross-sector environmental educators.

AAEE has three major roles:

  • Promote the effective use of education to help people to live more sustainably.
  • Support members via professional development.
  • Build strong local networks that facilitate collaboration and skill sharing.

AAEE Reflect Reconcilliation Plan February 2022 – February 2023  has been endorsed by Reconcilliation Australia. We are excited about working  with all our Chapters on this important initiative.
