Conference Reflection: Reflections on the ‘3rd World Environmental Education Congress: Educational pathways towards sustainability’, Italy, 2005
The 3rd World Environmental Education Congress follows two previous World Congress Meetings, one in Portugal in 2003 and one in Rio de Janeiro in 2004. The 1st World Environmental Education Congress was held following the World Summit on Education for Sustainable Development where, at this meeting, environmental education associations from around the world gathered to discuss networking across different associations and environmental education groups. A southern African group has been present at all the earlier World Congress meetings, and this year was no exception. Africa was invited to be a ‘special guest’ at the 3rd World Environmental Education Congress in Torino. Historic Torino, situated on the fringe of the beautiful Italian Alps, provided an inviting venue for a congress which attracted over 2 500 participants.
