Discover #SpaceForAll at the OAGEE Fall 2023 Conference
The annual OAGEE Fall 2023 Conference is set to take place at York University on October 12-13, 2023. This eagerly anticipated event gathers educators from across the province to share, learn and champion geographical education.
Under the banner of “#SpaceForAll,” this year’s conference is dedicated to making geography and environmental education accessible to everyone. The theme encourages exploration of diverse spaces and inclusivity in education.
Breaking away from tradition, this year’s conference offers a “flipped” format from years past.
The conference kicks off with a Faculty of Environmental and Urban Change Panel Presentation at 5:00 PM, followed by a campus walkabout highlighting ongoing initiatives from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM. A Wine Social at 7:00 PM wraps up the day’s events. Exhibitors are welcome to set up from 4:00 PM onwards.
Day two commences with a continental breakfast at 8:30 AM, leading into morning and afternoon sessions. Morning sessions run from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM, including a keynote, while the afternoon sessions from 1:45 PM to 4:45 PM offer deeper exploration. Breaks provide opportunities to engage with exhibitors.
The organizing committee invites businesses and organizations with a passion for geography to sponsor or exhibit. Two tiers are available for both for-profit and non-profit entities.
Recognizing varying resources, the committee welcomes reduced fees or “in-kind” contributions from not-for-profit groups.
The OAGEE Fall 2023 Conference promises a dynamic platform for geographical education enthusiasts. Embrace the fresh format, delve into the #SpaceForAll theme and connect with educators and professionals. Be a part of shaping the future of geographical education!
