From 13-16 March, Parc Zoologique de Paris and L’Aquarium tropical du Palais de la Porte Dorée hosted the European Zoo Educators (EZE) Conference.
With more than 150 delegates, it was the biggest EZE conference yet and completely sold out. Jointly organized by Paris Zoo, la Commission Française pour la Pédagogie Zoologique (CFPZ), the Education Commission of l'Association Française des Parcs Zoologiques (AFdPZ) and the EAZA Education Committee, the conference was a great success and we would like to thank all of our local hosts and the organizing committee for doing such a great job.
The theme of the conference was 'Diverse tools to engage audiences with nature: How creative design sparks conservation education diversity in EAZA zoos and aquariums'. This theme was chosen to provide all participants with unforgettable experiences that inspire lifelong learning and conservation involvement. Please join the conference and share your great ideas!Participants were able to explore and learn about new techniques and ideas for conservation education through a combination of presentations, workshops, and discussions.
