CBEEN is pleased to be partnering with the Canadian Network for Environmental Education and Communication (EECOM) and the BC Environmental Education Provincial Specialist Association (EEPSA) to host the EECOM 2018 National Environmental Education Conference.

EECOM 2018: Classrooms to Communities (C2C)     

October 17-21, 2018, St. Eugene Mission Resort, ʔaq’am Community, Ktunaxa Nation, Cranbrook, British Columbia

From C2C, over 200 educators will gather to learn, share and connect at this made-in-Canada environmental education conference. Located just five minutes from the Canadian Rockies  International Airport we welcome you to join us at St. Eugene Mission Resort on the warmer side of the Canadian Rockies.

EECOM National Conferences are Canada’s largest, regular gatherings of environmental learning stakeholders, providing unparalleled professional development and networking opportunities. Hosted in partnership with local groups and organizations, EECOM has successfully supported regional capacity building for environmental learning for over a decade. 

Guiding Principles:

  • We will model sustainability following the EECOM Green Conference Guidelines.
  • We will model best learning practices by using best practice learning methodology including open space, place-based and inquiry-based learning.
  • Eugene Mission Resort is in the ʔaq’am Community (St. Mary’s Band) on Ktunaxa Nation territory. Making intentional connections with the Aboriginal community, and Aboriginal Learning and Ways of Knowing, and First Peoples Principals of Learning will be foundational to this conference.
