The Forest Pedagogy Conference lead by the SDW is a nationwide conference on the professionalisation of forest pedagogues that has been held regularly since 2006. This year, we will carry out a Congress, which combines the established SDW Forest Pedagogy Conference and the 17th European Forest Pedagogics Congress (the annual congress of the FCN-Subgroup) in one event. It will take place under the motto "Learning to create together – How can forest-related ESD build partnerships and empower people?"
The congress will focus on participation, empowerment and the strengthening of partnerships for the transformation of society towards more sustainability. It will provide an opportunity to pool and expand the expertise of the two groups of actors. At the same time, we want to boost the existing forest education network. By looking beyond our own horizons, we are increasingly looking at neighbouring countries and worldwide in order to gain new supporters for forest-based education for sustainable development.
The event will take place at the JUFA Hotel in Königswinter near Bonn from the 20 to 22 September 2023. You are also invited to a get-together in Königswinter on 19 September 2023.
The congress is devided into theoretical and practical sessions: Experts will give theoretical input on forest pedagogics. Additionally, various workshops, activities and excursions provide practical insights.
As this is an international event, English will be the event language.
