Hosted by Wroclaw Zoo, Poland (13 - 17 March, 2023) #EEC2023

Welcome from EAZA

In the last two years we have been working through unprecedented times. The global pandemic has created a multitude of setbacks in so many facets of life. These types of situations remind us that the future may be uncertain and that major changes are possible in the short term. The EAZA biannual conservation education conferences are always an opportunity, not only to share experiences, but also to gather colleagues and friends. So, we invite Educators from across the EAZA region to join the 2023 EAZA Conservation Education Conference to share experiences and work together to build a realistic vision and plan for our future. This in-person conference will celebrate our successes, explore the different journeys we are on, and build consensus about where we are heading. Our ability to inspire people to act in favour of biodiversity of the next several decades depends on how we create the future learning.

See you all in Wroclaw!

Welcome from Zoo Wroclaw

It is our greatest pleasure and privilege to invite you all to visit Wrocław Zoo and the city of Wrocław and attend the EAZA Education Conference in March 2023. We have been waiting for this opportunity for a few years but because of the COVID-19 crisis we needed to postpone it. Now it is finally time to see you in person.

We hope that the upcoming event will provide a good forum for exchanging ideas and establishing new ways of educating the public to achieve a real change in conservation. The main theme of the conference is Conservation education of the future: from ideas to measurable outcomes.  We believe that many of you have lots of experience to share and inspire other Educators to implement new solutions at their zoos.

We would like to wish all of you a safe trip to Wrocław, a good conference and a lot of positive impressions to take home with you. See you in March!

Joanna Kasprzak Zoo Wroclaw CEO
Marta Zając-Ossowska Director of Education Department

Exploring Digital Tools for Educators (FULL)


This workshop aims to give conservation educators hands-on experience using a wide range of different learning technologies to aid in-person teaching, interpretation, and blended or fully remote learning. Throughout the highly interactive workshop, participants should build their confidence in using learning technologies, expand their knowledge of different free or very low-cost options available for educators, and generate ideas of how they can embed new tools into their existing practices and new education sessions.

Tutor: Lizzie Seymour, RZSS

This will be a highly interactive workshop. Participants will get the chance to use a range of free or very low-cost learning technologies from the point of view of both a student/visitor and an educator. Technologies include (but are not limited to!):

  • Audience Response Systems (ARS)
  • PowerPoint
  • Digital Learning Environments
  • Stop Motion Animation
  • Video Editing
  • QR codes
  • Augmented Reality
  • Virtual Reality
  • Collaborative Documents
  • Evaluation/Stats

We will take the time to answer any and all questions to ensure that everyone feels confident using these technologies, and tips for on-boarding other colleagues to secure finance or to help spread confidence in use.

We will then work in groups to generate ideas to apply these technologies to a range of different contexts including existing formal lessons, creating multiple touch points in learning, interactive interpretation, student-led learning and different outreach activities.
