Brisbane To Host World Environmental Education Congress

Brisbane will be the first Australian city to host the World Environmental Education Congress (WEEC).

Now in its sixth year, the Congress will be held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre from 19 to 23 July 2011 and will cover a number of environmental issues under the theme: Explore, Experience, Educate.

Delegates from organisations with a stake in environmental and sustainability education will take part in the international congress, to hear from global experts about the latest in environmental research, industry and policy developments, and educational programs.

Brisbane Marketing’s Convention Bureau Director, Annabel Sullivan said that the important environmental Congress is expected to attract more than 600 delegates and generate more than $2 million worth of economic value for the city of Brisbane.

“Brisbane is increasingly becoming a drawcard for international business events because of its strengths in a diverse range of industries and quality of local expertise,” said Sullivan.

“Our internationally-renowned industry leaders, universities and research communities provide conference organisers with excellent links to acclaimed thought-leaders and innovators.

“The Congress has previously been held in Portugal, Brazil, Italy, South Africa and Canada. This will be the first time that it will be held in the Asia Pacific region and is a real coup for Brisbane,” she said.

The five-day Congress program will encourage participants to learn and share new ways of thinking and to explore trends in research and practice in environmental education and focus on the science impact on climate change in the Asia Pacific.  The Congress will also provide an opportunity for young people to discuss the nature and purpose of environmental education in the future.

Participants will have the chance to network and engage with environmental educators work in schools, higher education, federal, state and local government agencies, non-government organisations, industry, business and education.
