KAEE's 35th Annual Conference will take place on September 16-17, 2011 at The Brown Hotel in Louisville.
Are you interested in getting professional development experience, learning more about the field of environmental education, and having a great time? Join us for workshops sessions, exhibitors, networking, speakers, and more! The KAEE conference is open to people from all walks of life- teachers, administrators, government and agency personnel, business and industry representatives and private citizens. We welcome anyone with an interest in the environment and education. Please join us in our mission to "build a sustainable environment through education".
This year's conference theme is Environmental Education: Everywhere for Everyone. We all know that environmental education is at home in the forests and fields, but it has a well-established foot-hold in the cities as well. Urban gardening, green building design, and cleaner transportation are all areas of focus in population centers. Wherever people live, there is a need for environmental education.
