The conference attracted about 200 participants from all over the SADC region as well as from Sweden and the United States of America including 12 representatives from Botswana. The participants enjoyed various excursions such as the visit to Kazungula bridge, Victoria Falls, an art studio that uses waste to make artefacts and eco-cycling and a tour of the town of Livingstone. To conclude the conference, EEASA held their Annual General Meeting that was attended by all, at which a lot of issues relating to EEASA Council and Conferences were raised.
This event is a wonderful platform for networking as it gives an opportunity to participants to forge collaborations and to work together for the successful implementation of education for sustainable development projects and initiatives. CCB’s representatives were excited to learn about all the different approaches including performing arts that are being used to further disseminate environmental conservation messages to different audiences.
