In Italy, Bergamo, the next European Days on Environmental Education

On the 25th and the 26th September 2014 the European Days of Environmental Education will be held in Bergamo (Italy ) which will become the “capital of Europe “ for a few days.

The announcement was made at a press conference held in Bergamo March 3rd 2014, in the presence of the commissioners for the environment of the Lombardy Region, Province and Municipality of Bergamo Claudia Terzi, Enrico Piccinelli and Massimo Bandera and the General Secretary of the WEEC network Mario Salomone.

Bergamo and the Lombardia region have a wealth of parks, botanical gardens, museums and eco-museums, educational farms etc. and a wide variety of experiences in the field of environmental education. The local “system” has been mobilized to ensure the success of the “Days” and to offer participants workshops, visits and other opportunities to meet life and experiences in the region. The first edition of the European meeting was held in Lyon on March 4, 2013. Knowledge sharing and networking - both between the EU member countries and the other countries of the continent - are among the goals of the event. It will also be given support to the development of environmental education policies both at national and European level. The format of the meeting will range from plenary sessions to small parallel groups and activities “on the ground”.

For the Italian world of environmental education this event will be also a valuable opportunity to reinforce the process begun in 2013, which aims to replenish the ranks of a system put in suffering from the cuts in public spending.

WEEC: the idea of a strongest and best organized network is welcomed

The Permanent Secretariat has consulted those who have already joined the network by endorsing the Charter of Principles. The question asked was about the future developments and in particular on the choice to make the network more formal and "institutionalized".

The vast majority said "Yes" to the formal subscription to the international network. Only 1 per cent, in fact, didn’t agree to formally subscribe and 10% said that "do not know" and that "want to think or understand more and / or consult his organization. "All the others are ready to join as individuals (40%), as individuals and as an organization (32%) or organization (17%).

The same percentage (89%) was recorded for those interested in participating in a coordination at continent or sub-continent level.
Almost everyone, finally, is interested in contributing to the work of "Permanent Research Committees."
