Coming Together | Wellborn Leadership Conference &
New England Environmental Education Alliance Conference

November 1-3, 2018    • Lake Morey Resort, Fairlee, Vermont

Wellborn Hub, Vermont SWEEP, and New Hampshire Environmental Educators are Coming Together to present this year’s New England Environmental Education Alliance (NEEEA) Conference. The Wellborn Hub will host sessions on Thursday, November 1 that are aligned to their mission of working to ensure all Upper Valley schools have access to high-quality place-based ecology education. NEEEA hosted sessions will begin on Thursday afternoon with field trips, and will continue on Friday and Saturday with concurrent sessions being offered both days. Participants will register for one day, two days, or all three days.

For this conference, we invite Environmental Educators from throughout New England to come together around our shared work of building environmentally resilient and just communities. We seek proposals for presentations that share innovative approaches, success stories, lessons learned, and best practices. We seek presenters that represent the diversity of places and spaces in which environmental education occurs in our communities, and that exemplify the inclusive nature of environmental education. We encourage active audience engagement indoors or even outside!

Submit your presentation proposal under one of the five thematic strands that characterize this year’s conference. Each strand explores a different aspect of building environmentally resilient and just communities. Use these strands to guide your submission and choose the one that most closely aligns with your proposal. 

The Wellborn Hub seeks presentations that are 60 or 90 minutes in length for sessions scheduled for Thursday, November 1. The New England Environmental Education Alliance seeks presentations that are 75 minutes in length and will take place throughout the day on Friday and Saturday. You will specify in your proposal which day or days you are willing to present.

Here is more information about the conference strands and proposal process.
