11th World Environmental Education Congress


11th World Environmental Education Congress

Dear Friends and Members of the Environmental and Sustainability Education Community,

A few months remain to the 11th World Environmental Education Congress (14-18th March 2022) in Prague. We are looking forward to welcoming you here! We believe this will be a time when we – after two difficult years – will be able to meet again in person.

The 11th WEEC focuses on “building bridges.” We take this as a chance for our community to build new partnerships, develop existing networks and promote cooperation in our field. We believe that this is very much needed. The severity of climate changes and deterioration of the environment calls for a strong global response. As our community is a part of this, our response needs to be strong and global. Cooperation is the key.

Building Bridges in Times of Climate Urgency

How can environmental and sustainability education contribute to overcoming the disjunction that isseparating people from nature? How can we support a more sustainable, equitable, and relational way ofbeing in the world?

Our Congress will try to help in building bridges between:

  • different approaches to environmental education and education for sustainable development
  • researchers and practitioners around the world
  • formal, non-formal, informal, and community education
  • national strategies in environmental education
