The Wellington Region Environmental Educators Forum also operates as the Wellington branch, supporting teachers of all levels and environmental education providers in the Wellington region.
Each year is planned according to the needs of membership. Usually there are a couple of social events for all members plus two hui a year for EE providers. Our focus for 2022 is engaging more with teachers to ensure our EE programmes are meeting their needs.
During 2021 we held a workshop about understanding Te Tiriti of Waitangi and thinking about our role as tangata tiriti. This is a continued theme throughout all of our mahi.
Key parts of the WREEF network continue to provide support:
Our AGM was held on 28 April and we were delighted to have Andrea Soanes from the Science Learning Hub talk about the work that they are doing with the Ministry for the Enviroment to create learning opportunities from the Envronment Aotearoa 2022 report.
