The 2018 IPMEN conference will be held at National Taiwan Ocean University, Keelung, Taiwan, from Oct 1 to 5, 2018. This will be the sixth biennial IPMEN conference. In 2007 IPMEN was set up to enhance the international networking of marine educators and since that time IPMEN has cultivated an organic relationship; one in which we grow together along with the National Marine Educators Association (NMEA) in the USA, the Australian Association for Environmental Education (AAEE), the European Marine Science Education Association (EMSEA), the Canadian Network of Ocean Educators (CaNOE) and the Asia Marine Educators Association (AMEA).
This year, the 2018 IPMEN will focus on how to encourage collaboration and cooperation between governments, policy makers, stakeholders, scientists, educators and the public as well, as far as marine education is concerned. Thus, the theme of the 2018 IPMEN is Co-constructing the Development System for Marine Education. The conference topics include:
1. Building the Framework for Promoting Marine Education
2. Enhancing the Informal Marine Education
3. Inspiring Cross-disciplinary Educators to Engage in Marine Education
4. The Role and Use of Marine Protected Area for Education
5. Professional Development for Marine Educators
6. Other Issues related to Marine Education
Both formal and informal marine educators plus scientists, researchers and activists are more than welcome to participate in IPMEN 2018. For more details feel free to contact us by Email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
