EECOM 2021–Exploring the Nature of Cities: Urban Environmental Education in Action
April 21 - April 24
The Canadian Network for Environmental Education and Communication (EECOM) is excited to be streaming their annual conference online in 2021.
The focus is on Urban Environmental Education – with most of the world’s population living in urban areas, helping citizens understand their impact on the environments in which they live is key to making cities more sustainable and livable.
Well-timed to address growing concerns about the rate and pace of climate change, this conference will equip educators at all levels in school and community settings with the knowledge and skills they need to help their learners and communities make a shift towards environmental sustainability.
This national EECOM conference is taking place April 21-24, 2021 and based at the University of Toronto, located on the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.
Event organizers anticipate delegates registering for this conference from all sectors involved in environmental education: K-12 educators, college and university faculty, community educators, educational administrators and policy makers, as well as students from secondary and post-secondary settings.
EECOM 2021 is being offered in partnership EcoSchools Canada, the Ontario Institute of Studies in Education (OISE) at the University of Toronto, and the TDSB’s Sustainability Office.
