About the EECOM 2019 Conference

The EECOM 2019 Conference took place 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 was “Action on Climate Change Through Education,” making this the first national environmental education conference with a focus on climate change education. Our aim was 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 focused on PreK-12 Education, Higher Education, Community Education, and Indigenous Education. There were keynote plenaries, panel discussions, hands-on workshops, place-based field trips, pre-conference field trips, leadership seminars, and more.

The conference was 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.
