Environment Conference call for papers

The Union’s biannual environment conference is back. This year it’s on at the Mercure Hotel, Sydney on 16 October. The theme is arts, sciences, social justice and environmental sustainability.

Dr Mark Diesendorf’s (UNSW) keynote, Sustainability: Transitioning Australia’s energy system from fossil fuels to renewable energy, will be fascinating and useful for teachers across a variety of key learning areas.

The Union is seeking teachers in early childhood, primary and secondary settings to run a one-hour workshop. The workshop might highlight what you are currently doing with your class or at school in relation to the arts, sciences, social justice or environmental sustainability.

All members with a passion for environmental education are invited to submit an application to present at the conference. For more information, contact Amy Cotton Professional Officer amy@ieu.asn.au
