World Environmental Education Congress 2007
International Conference Centre
Durban, South Africa
2 - 6 July 2007

As part of contributing to global efforts to implement the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development, the Environmental Education Association of Southern Africa, together with its partners invites you to attend the 2007 World Environmental Education Congress in an environmentally interesting and culturally rich region characterised by many sustainable development challenges.

The World EE Congress Secretariat (Italy) also invites you to be part of the consolidation and launch of the World Environmental Education Association, which will take place at the 2007 WEEC. Please come and participate in the debate and discussions.

The Congress Theme: Learning in a Changing World

Education for Sustainable Development includes environmental education processes that enable people everywhere to learn in a changing world.

One of the most constant features of life today is change. Globalisation and internationalisation are among processes that have created a world context of uncertainty, flux and risk. Schools, community organizations, business and governments around the world are challenged to respond to unprecedented and complex economic, political, social and environmental changes. The direction of human development is in question. Traditional forms of teaching, learning and awareness raising are changing to incorporate new concepts and life-long learning approaches. Organisational and workplace learning is evolving. People everywhere are learning in a changing world. Since the Tbilisi Principles on education and environment were released in 1977, environmental education has created many opportunities for critical and creative thinking, teaching, learning, awareness raising and taking action.

Thirty years later, the 2007 World Environmental Education Congress hopes to extend creative opportunities for dialogue, reflection and evaluation in a growing and dynamically evolving field that is currently engaging with the outcomes of the World Summit on Sustainable Development and the implications of the UN Decade on Education for Sustainable Development.
