Hosted in Mandurah, Western Australia, a city renowned for its beautiful waterways, internationally recognised wetlands, ancient thrombolites and enchanting plants and wildlife. This global biodiversity hotspot truly is one of a kind.
Inspired by moving local examples, resilience theory, future’s thinking and Mandurah’s relaxed waterside lifestyle, the overarching conference theme is “Mandjoogoordap: Changing Tides”. Mandjoogoordap means “meeting place of the heart” in the indigenous Noongar language of the region, and changing tides can represent the need for change, the inevitability of change as with natural tidal cycles, or the positive changes resulting from Education for Sustainability efforts.
Combined, Mandjoogoordap: Changing Tides is a concept that aims to showcase examples of people coming together to create positive change through environmental education, along with innovative, practical and effective tools for change-making. Both physical and virtual attendance options available, and we can't wait to have you join us!
This event is brought to you by the Australian Association for Environmental Education.
