Almost 2000 people gathered at the Palais des congrès de Montréal this past May 10 to 14 for the 5th World Environmental Education Congress, an event that proved to be a rich opportunity for sharing knowledge and experience, charting new and promising paths for political action and celebrating the wide range of approaches to environmental education.
The leaders of the thematic niches, parallel activities and political forum panels are in the process of compiling and synthesizing the ideas and proposed actions that emerged from their respective events. These reports, which also take a look at the spinoffs generated by the Congress activities, will be posted online under Congress reports this June and July, as they become available.
Thank you to all Congress artisans and participants for helping to make this event a resounding success!

Montréal, la magnifique
The 5th Congress is an unbelievable opportunity to discover Montréal, a vibrant city, proud of its multiculturality and its diversity.
“Montréal the metropolis has everything a big city can offer. But Montréal is also one-of-a-kind, a multicultural city that blends its French accent with that of over 80 other ethnic communities and charms visitors with its Euro-American ambiance. Montréal is also innovative and invigorating, offering a whirlwind of cultural creations, both traditional and modern. Its downtown bustles with life at the foot of its mountain, while history is rooted in the old quarters near the river”. (Official tourist site of the Government of Québec, 2008)
Come an discover its numerous attractions, including the hidden treasures of the Quartier international where the Congress will be held!
