EES members are leaders in the field. They have editorial responsibilities in various international journals including the highly rated Environmental Education Research. We have convened and/or advised international and world EES-related research conferences, workshops and seminar series. We work regularly with active research networks in Europe, Asia, North America, South America and Africa - see our associate members.
We also work closely with Monash Sustainability Institute (MSI). Sustainability is a priority theme for research at Monash University. The EES FRG is committed to the interdisciplinary development of research, research led education and teaching, and community engagement with purposeful impact.
