The goal of the Sustaining the Blue Planet: Global Water Education Conference is to increase the knowledge and capacity of conference participants to effectively reach children and youth through education that leads to action in schools, communities and corporations.
In September 2011, water is going to be big in Big Sky Country!
The Project WET Foundation—publisher of the most complete water resources education materials available and leader in the field of water education in the United States and around the world—is inviting everyone with an interest in our most precious natural resource to join us in beautiful Bozeman, Montana for Sustaining the Blue Planet.
The first conference to focus exclusively on water education and its role in solving the world's pressing water issues, Sustaining the Blue Planet will offer five conference strands, a full array of speakers, the much-anticipated launch of Project WET's Curriculum & Activity Guide 2.0, pre- and post-conference workshops, pre-conference field experiences and dedicated networking opportunities...all within easy reach of some of the best fishing, hiking, biking and other outdoor recreation anywhere. And did we mention that Yellowstone National Park is just down the road?
Sustaining the Blue Planet begins on Tuesday evening with a reception perfect for networking and continues through Wednesday, Thursday and Friday with presentations, poster sessions, keynote speakers, exhibitors, the Guide 2.0 launch and more.
