What is the KAEE Conference?

The KAEE Conference is the annual gathering of educators across the Commonwealth. These educators can be environmental educators at nature centers, state parks, or government agencies. These educators can be science teachers in the classroom, college or university professors, or even post-secondary students. If you're an educator and even part of your focus relates to the environment, this is the place for you.

Join us to learn about new and innovative programs, best practices for early childhood to adult education, the latest trends in climate education, and so much more. Join us to experience a welcoming and inviting environment where we all belong and can work together to build a more sustainable future.

About the Sliding Scale Registration

Our sliding-scale registration fee is an intentional effort of class solidarity to ensure the conference is accessible to all.

What is Class Solidarity?
Class refers to where you fit into the world regarding finances (for example, poor, working class, middle class, wealthy). If you are attending and your organization is paying for your participation, please choose the "Full Cost" option, unless this will also be a barrier for your organization (such as a grassroots nonprofit). If you or your organization can pay the full cost, you will be taking an action of solidarity and making KAEE's conference more accessible for people who cannot afford to pay much. If cost is a barrier, certainly consider the available sliding scale rates
.

No matter what you pay for the conference, there is no judgment. Pay what you can but most importantly: be here! We are so excited to gather with you.
