The Habitat Foundation is pleased to announce its inaugural EE Practitioners’ Workshop which will be a workshop designed to support innovation and new approaches in environmental education. The focus of the workshop is to create a platform for knowledge sharing and mutual learning among leading practitioners, educators, and environmental interpreters. The workshop which will be held on 21-22 June 2018 will be held at The Habitat Penang Hill and the Penang Botanic Gardens. It is fully supported by The Habitat Foundation as part of its Education Programme.
Our intention is to elevate the practice of environmental education in Malaysia among those committed to fostering enduring connections to nature among young people. This includes hardwiring commitment to sustainability and nurturing future environmental leaders.
A further objective of the workshop is to motivate and inspire those working on the frontlines of Environmental Education to continue to be creative and innovative in their work. The gathering will also provide a strategic opportunity for participants to help form a supportive peer network for greater impact.
Leaders in Environmental Education
We are excited to have been able to assemble some of the leaders in Environmental Education to Malaysia to present and facilitate the sessions. The lead presenters will be Bernadette Joeman and George Hubert from Rainforest Discovery Centre, Sepilok. They have done pioneering work in EE since the RDC was first established in 1997.
