Event description
“Our struggle for global sustainability will be won or lost in cities” Ban Ki-moon, former UN Secretary-General

About this Event

London is a world-leading city for urban environmental education. With human populations becoming increasingly urbanised, the environmental education work carried out in our cities has global significance and deserves greater recognition and support.

Our first national conference will mark LEEF's 30th anniversary year. We invite you to celebrate with us and help showcase the best urban environmental education work taking place in London and the UK, as we look ahead to future challenges.

The conference will consist of three keynote speeches in the morning, a choice of one hour workshops before lunch and another set of one hour workshops in the afternoon. There will be the chance to network with other attendees throughout the day.

Lunch and refreshments are provided during the day.

Tickets for LEEF members are £85.

Tickets for Non-LEEF Members are £125 and include a 1-year membership to LEEF.

If you are part of environmental education networks like MEEN, Essex LOtC or Bristol Natural History Consortium, please contact conference@leef.london
