EAZA Conservation Educaiton Conference 2023.jpg

EAZA Education Conference

Date: March 13-17, 2023

Location: Wroclaw Zoo, Poland

The theme of this conference has been chosen to reflect the increasingly diverse environments we are working in, and the challenges we still face in converting our enthusiasm and creativity into measurable and demonstrable conservation education success.  Conservation education is a key activity for zoos and aquariums, and we are still in the process of exploring the extent of the roles zoos and aquariums can play on the global biodiversity conservation stage. We have a wealth of tools available to support and guide our activities (such as the EAZA Conservation Education Standards, the World Zoo and Aquarium Conservation Education Strategy, the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework, and the UN Sustainable Development Goals), but it is not always easy to apply these big and broad concepts in our own daily work.

As we emerge from a period of intense and largely unplanned change in the field of zoo education, the goal of this conference is to bring educators from across the EAZA region and beyond to share experiences and work together to build a realistic vision and plan for our future. We want to use this conference to celebrate our successes, explore the different journeys we are on, and build consensus about where we are heading.
