Many educators make an important contribution through their environmental education practice.

Thinking about how, why and even what you do to educate others about the environment is important – especially on this day: World Environment Day!

The Australian Association for Environmental Education (AAEE) and the New Zealand Association for Environmental Education (NZAEE) is collaborating with the Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand (EIANZ) of to develop a joint position statement about environmental education.

It is important that your views/ideas/practices are represented in this document.

We invite you to participate in the online survey to offer your experiences and thoughts and help inform the position statement.

The data collected in this survey will help shape the position paper. We’ve already had a great response from many environmental educators, but it is important to hear from a variety of environmental professionals whose work includes environmental education.

Please complete the survey yourself – thinking about the strong voice we need to have to ensure a viable future for all.

Share the survey

Diverse voices are critical to developing a position paper that is inclusive and representative.

Conference workshops

Additionally, a series of conference workshops are being conducted.

The first was held at the NZAEE Conference last month. We had many people participate using their creative energy to represent what influences them, what their key environmental issues are, and what are the most effective ways forward.  The discussion that resulted was rich and informed through the arts-based practice.  Participants reported that they enjoyed the workshop and found value in the rich discussion.

We will be conducting similar arts-based workshops at the AAEE conference in October and the EIANZ conference in November.  Please come along!
