Anyone needing a bit more time to get stuff done these days? We hear ya. To give everyone who’s interested in presenting at the 2020 Kentucky Association for Environmental Education Annual Conference ample time to submit a proposal, we’ve extended the deadline to May 17.
“Annual Conference is a blast,” said recent conference co-chair Joanna Ashford. “It’s a great time for educators, both formal and nonformal, to come together to brainstorm, attend sessions, and figure out what everybody across the state is doing both for students and adults.”
Held in a different location each year, KAEE’s Annual Conference allows us to “showcase all the great things happening around state,” said KAEE executive director Ashley Hoffman. “It’s an opportunity for our members to get out and see what’s going on in different areas, learn from each other, and bring back ideas to their centers.”
And this, Joanna said, helps “us increase the work we are doing for EE.”
This year's conference will be held Sept. 17-19 at Jenny Wiley State Park. With the theme "Community Engagement: Building Sustainable Communities through the Power of Environmental Education," conference strands include Education (EE Curriculum Programs, K-12 Education, Adult & Family Education, STEM, Green & Health Schools, etc.), Partnerships & Innovation (Community Partnerships, New & Innovative Projects, etc.), Civic Action (Community Service Projects, Service Learning, Green Schools Community Projects, etc.), and Capacity Building (Outreach, Fundraising, Communications, Messaging, Branding, Technology, etc.).
“Coming to conference is joyful,” Joanna said, “and you create friendships that will last for a lifetime.”
