This will be the first time the conference will be held on Hawaiʻi Island.

The theme for this year’s symposium is “Hawaiʻi Environmental Education in a Changing Climate.” The conference will share the latest tools, resources, and guidance on how to integrate the key themes of resiliency, stewardship, and meaningful action into formal and informal educational efforts.

The three-day networking event brings together formal and non-formal educators, environmental education practitioners, conservationists, and resource managers.

The event will also feature workshops, concurrent sessions, field experiences, and a presentation by Dr. Chip Fletcher, Chairperson and Professor in the Department of Geology & Geophysics, UH Mānoa’s School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology.

There will be over 30 presentations from partners in environmental education including U’ilani Lima, who will teach about the Molokaʻi Digital Bus program, Anya Tagawa of the Division of Forestry and Wildlife, Jim Foley of NOAA and more.
