Imagine a World
Our33rd Annual Conferencewill build onmore than four decades of work in our field to think creatively and collectively about how we can create a more sustainable future.
We will pay tribute to the importance of the first international conference on environmental education, which was held in Tbilisi, Georgia, in 1977. Environmental Education leaders from around the world came together and framed how education can help address the growing environmental and social challenges facing society.
During the conference, we will share ideas and innovation about how we can imagine a better future and create a path forward for the field in the coming decade and beyond.
Our Friday conference will include hour long workshops in the following strands:
Applying Research to Increase Our Impact
Building Leadership for Environmental Literacy
Educating for Sustainable Communities
Conservation and Environmental Education
Inspiring Connections to the Outdoors

PROJECT WET CURRICULUM GUIDE WORKSHOP(K-12),Presented by Kevin Kopp
The Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide 2.0 is a collection of 64 science-based, interdisciplinary activities and lesson plans that are teacher-tested and classroom ready for K-12 students. Designed with a commitment to meeting educational standards, Project WET activities use the vital importance of water to cover diverse topics and disciplines. Activities with names such as "The Incredible Journey," "Pass the Jug," "Macro-invertebrate Mayhem," describe lessons that are sure to pique student interest and make learning fun. This guide is only available to educators who participate in a six-hour Project WET Workshop. The lessons in this guide are correlated to the NGSS. In addition, workshop participants learn about an amazing array of supplementary educational materials that focus specifically on NJ's water resources.
This daylong workshop includes breakfast, box lunch and snacks. Register before December 25 and pay the discounted fee of $40. You can choose your Thursday workshop under the registration tab. If you are coming both Thursday and Friday, you will need to order a separate ticket for each day.
