About the EECOM 2019 Conference

The EECOM 2019 Conference will take place on May 10-12, 2019 on the bank of the South Saskatchewan River at the University of Saskatchewan on Treaty 6 territory, Saskatoon, Canada.

The theme of the EECOM Conference in 2019 is “Action on Climate Change Through Education,” making this the first national environmental education conference with a focus on climate change education. Our aim is to increase action on climate change through education by bringing together educators, students, policy makers, researchers, and community members to discuss and collaborate on this important and timely topic.

Four concurrent session strands will focus on PreK-12 Education, Higher Education, Community Education, and Indigenous Education. We are excited to bring a mix of presentation styles and formats, which will support participants of all backgrounds and learning styles. There will be keynote plenaries, panel discussions, hands-on workshops, place-based field trips, pre-conference field trips, leadership seminars, and more.

The conference is being co-hosted by the Saskatchewan Outdoor and Environmental Education Association (SaskOutdoors), the Sustainability and Education Policy Network (SEPN), and the Sustainability Education Research Institute (SERI) at the University of Saskatchewan.
