Youth Environmental Education Conference (YEEC)
in line with the 12th World Environmental Education Congress (WEEC)

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates  |  29th January – 2nd February 2024


The Youth Environmental Education Conference, which runs in line and is mainstreamed to the World Environmental Education Congress, is a platform that provides opportunities to engage youth in Environmental Education, and articulate their thoughts, challenges, address their interests, concerns, and goals. Additionally, YEEC provide opportunities for youth to engage with practitioners in the design, process and implementation of Environmental Education initiatives and programmes.

The conference will be a platform for the youth to speak their minds, build knowledge, network with international fellow youth and learn from each other.

Furthermore, youth will have the chance to be seated at the table and discuss insights, recommendations, and the way forward in the Environmental Education Field.

This global event will fulfil the curiosity of the participants by learning about Abu Dhabi nature, visiting some of its best nature sites, and experiencing local heritage of Abu Dhabi, during the most pleasant season of the year.

Your presence will be highly valuable.
