Environmental education organisations on the Gold Coast range from environmental education centres to private companies who run programs for community group, schools and businesses. These programs have contributed to building capacity in skills and knowledge for a range of stakeholders in a coastal, estuarine and forest environment.
Being part of the AAEE Queensland chapter provides a number of networking opportunities for environmental educators based on the Gold Coast. Due to a high population, booming tourism industry and large events in this region, building awareness on the natural environment is a priority.
We organise a number of regional programs that support professional development and in 2018 the region will host the 20th biennial AAEE Conference, set amongst lush valleys and golden beaches.
