The 35th NSW Environmental Education Conference will be the premier opportunity in 2021 for environmental and sustainability educators to network, connect, learn and share ideas and inspiration. 

The Australian Association for Environmental Education (AAEE) NSW has a proven track record in the delivery of successful, well-attended and engaging conference events. The 2021 conference is co-hosted by the NSW Chapter of AAEE and the Central Coast Environmental Education Network (CCEEN) and supported by the Community Environment Network, Central Coast Council, Rumbalara Environmental Education Centre and the Central Coast Marine Discovery Centre. The conference sponsor is the University of Newcastle. We invite you to join us through sponsorship, partnership or exhibition packages to share in this exciting event! 

The conference is a three-day event that includes plenary sessions, concurrent sessions, field trips, networking events and the announcement of the 2021 NSW Environmental Educator of the Year Awards. The key themes of the 2021 conference are sustainability, conservation, biodiversity and climate change and the sessions will be inclusive of education delivered in formal and informal contexts from early childhood through to primary school, high school and tertiary settings as well as community education. 

Young people will be given a central role as speakers, presenters and participants. All presenters will be asked to tell stories, make links, draw out lessons, highlight achievements and indicate possibilities for strengthening the focus on the theme. 

The conference is expected to attract delegates from a range of sectors including community educators, local, state and federal government agencies, schools and early learning, universities, NGOs, business and industry. Students and young adults are encouraged to attend and participate.
