EECOM is pleased to invite you to participate in this annual conference at the University of Victoria, BC. EECOM is Canada’s only national, bilingual, charitable network for environmental learning. EECOM works strategically and collaboratively to advance environmental learning to ensure Canadians are environmentally literate, engaged in environmental stewardship and contributing to a healthy, sustainable future. This year we commemorate those 20 years with another fabulous gathering of Canada’s environmental education and communication community in Victoria, British Columbia. We’ll gather in the territories of the Coast and Straits Salish People at the University of Victoria Faculty of Education and explore other local settings for three days of learning and experiences. Keynote speakers and special presenters include: Guy Dauncey, Jim Hoggan, Elin Kelsey, Jennifer Good, Robert Bateman and Bob McDonald. Click here for more information on the speakers . Practitioners and researchers working in fields of formal, non-formal, and higher education doing work in such topics as integrated and place-based learning, curriculum theory, leadership, environmental health, ecopsychology, ecophilosophy, green business, communication, sustainability, social justice, and climate change will be presenting at this twentieth anniversary conference.
