The North American Association for Environmental Education has announced that its 2011 conference will be held at the Raleigh Convention Center. North Carolina's active environmental education community and infrastructure, including the Environmental Educators of North Carolina, the N.C. Office of Environmental Education and the N.C. Association of Environmental Education Centers, were certainly factors in attracting this major conference. Of course, it is still in its early planning stages, but information about this and the 2009 and 2010 conferences are available on the NAAEE Web site.
You may have heard--the 40th Annual Conference of the North American Assocation for Environmental Education will be in Raleigh, North Carolina October 12-15!
NAAEE is hosting three Twitter Chats on the three consecutive Wednesdays before the conference: Sept. 21, Sept. 28 and Oct. 5 from 11 a.m until 5 p.m EDT. To join in, use the conference hashtag #NAAEE2011.
The final chat topic is: "How can EE programs be more inclusive, both culturally and socially?" We hope to see a lot of ideas generated, as well as sharing of first-hand experiences from businesses, environmental educators and program providers. Of course, you don't have to attend the conference to participate on the chat!
You don't use Twitter but do use Facebook? The conversation will also be posted on the NAAEE Facebook page. Just give them a like to join in!
