This year’s annual Environmental Education Association of Southern Africa (EEASA) conference will be interdisciplinary in its focus and aims at bridging social and academic gaps between different cultures.
Delegates will further discuss good practices, scientific attitudes and social networking among practitioners from southern Africa and other parts of the world.
The conference is scheduled for 9 to 12 September 2014.
The upcoming conference is the 32nd annual EEASA conference and UNAM has been tasked to host it on its main campus in Windhoek.
The conference theme is “Reflections on the Current and Emerging Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) issues and the Practices Informing the Post Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (DESD) Framework Programme”. This theme is in line with the World Conference on Education for Sustainable Development that will take place in Nagoya, Japan in November this year. The overall objectives of the conference are to reflect on the activities in Environmental Education and Education for Sustainable Development in southern Africa.
Additionally, to identify and share best practices and challenges from the first United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (UNDESD) that could inform the post DESD framework programme for the Southern African region and contribute to the Global Action Programme on sustainable development post-2014. All environmental researchers, practitioners, decision makers, policy makers and educators as well other interested people, organisations and individuals intending to contribute to the conference and workshops are invited to register for the 32nd EEASA conference. The form of participation may be through oral or poster presentation on sustainability practices or round table discussions.
