EECOM

Conferences

EECOM National Conferences are Canada’s largest, regular gatherings of environmental learning stakeholders, and provide unparalleled professional development and networking opportunities. Frequently hosted in national or regional parks and important conservation areas, these events often incorporate outdoor recreational activities as an integral part of the conference and provide conference participants with opportunities to explore and learn about different parts of our diverse nation and it’s natural resources. Hosted in partnership with local groups and organizations, this has been one way EECOM has successfully supported regional capacity building for environmental learning for over a decade.
