The Environmental Institute of Australia and New Zealand (EIANZ) is partnering with the Australian Association for Environmental Education (AAEE) and the New Zealand Association for Environmental Education (NZAEE) to develop a joint position statement on environmental education. The output of this project should be a solid consensus position across the three organisations, supported by a peer reviewed publication of the research on which it is based. We hope that this will provide a robust basis on which to base future advocacy activities in relation to environmental education.
The first phase of research into practitioners’ views on environmental education is a short 15-minute survey. We invite you to go and complete the survey at Environmental Education Position Paper. Feel free to circulate link this to any of your contacts who are active in environmental education as well. A bigger sample will make our findings even more robust.
We will also be conducting an arts-based research workshop at the AAEE Conference in the Gold Coast in October and would be thrilled if you are able to join us. This will give us very rich qualitative data to help interpret the survey findings.

New Zealand Association for Environmental Education (NZAEE)
9th Biennial Conference: An Ecosystem for Environmental Education
Wednesday 18- Friday 20 April 2018
Wellington Girls College, Wellington, New Zealand
It has never been a more exciting & challenging time to be an environmental educator in New Zealand and around the world. Join us as we examine the challenges and celebrate progress and successes in the Wellington region, nationally and beyond, through a diverse and fascinating array of presentations, workshops, field trips and networking opportunities.
This conference will be exploring two core streams that support our ‘Ecosystem for Environmental Education’ theme:
The Ecosystem for Environmental Education represents the vast and interconnected network of individuals and organisations without whom our successes wouldn’t be possible. Throughout this conference, we’ll be exploring our own ecosystem and the ways we can nurture it to ensure its health for decades to come.
· Celebrating and Strengthening Collaboration:
This stream will celebrate current collaborations – identifying key aspects that make them successful and exploring tools and participatory design that will improve collaboration between partners and the wider community.
