Promoting environmental education in Western Australia

Over almost 30 years, the AAEE has worked with government and non-government organisations in the interests of quality education and environmental change. The WA chapter is unique, involving a broad cross-section of environmental educators from diverse areas such as schools, government agencies, industry, universities, technical and further education centres, zoos, museums, parks and reserves, environmental education centres and community and conservation groups.

The AAEE WA network group meets every month on the third Thursday from 4.00 to 5.30pm at the Canning River Eco Education Centre. This provides an opportunity to keep in touch about the developments in Environmental Education in WA and to plan for joint projects with a diverse range of people.

AAEE WA also have a monthly E Bulletin called the Environmental Educators Network (EEN) that features events, training opportunities and ways to get involved with environmental education in WA.  If you would like to subscribe to the E Bulletin or you have an event to advertise then email [email protected].
