Joint position statement on environmental education in development

Published 16 Apr 2018

In a project led by the Policy and Practice Committee, EIANZ is collaborating with members of the Australian Association for Environmental Education and the New Zealand Association for Environmental Education to develop a joint position statement that reflects how environmental education can be offered. The output of this project will be a consensus across the three organisations, supported by a peer-reviewed publication of the research on which it is based. This will provide a robust basis for future advocacy activities in relation to environmental education.

As a starting point, we are seeking your views on environmental education. Please take the time to complete this short survey. Feel free to share the survey with other environmental professionals and educators.

A series of workshops are being conducted, the first was held at the New Zealand Association for Environmental Education Conference last month. We had many people come along and use their creative energy to generate visual maps and images around what influences them, what their key issues are and what are the most effective ways forward.  The discussion that resulted was rich and informed through the artistic practice of creating the representations.

Later in the year there will be an opportunity to contribute to the project at a workshop at the EIANZ Annual Conference in November
