For more than four decades, NAAEE has convened one of the leading annual conferences for environmental education professionals, designed to promote innovation, networking, learning, and dissemination of best practices. The annual Research Symposium, held in advance of the conference, attracts new and established researchers to examine in-progress EE research and promote dialogue between researchers and practitioners.
The 46th Annual Conference will build on more than four decades of work in the field to think creatively and collectively about how we can create a more sustainable future. During the conference, we will pay tribute to the importance of the first international conference on environmental education, which was held in Tbilisi, Georgia, in 1977, and brought together environmental education leaders from around the world who first framed how education can help address the growing environmental and social challenges facing society. We will share ideas and innovation about how we can build on the Tbilisi framework to imagine a better future and create a path forward for the field in the coming decade and beyond.
