"Creating ecologically sustainable communities"

The Australian Association for Environmental Education (AAEE) is the professional association for environmental educators. AAEE NSW represents environmental educators from all sectors (community, formal and government educators) in discussions, debates and provides recommendations on issues and directions for a sustainable future.

For over 30 years, AAEE has worked with government and non-government organisations in the interests of quality education and environmental change. Our approach to promoting environmental education is positive, cooperative and inclusive.

AAEE NSW works to assist environmental educators to get involved, improve their knowledge through professional development, assist local networks, share up-to-date news and resources and provides a forum for the NSW environmental education community to share their knowledge and expertise.
