SYMPOSIUM ON ENVIRONMENTAL TRAINING - CALL FOR KEY-NOTE SPEAKERS

Eco Counselling Europe, the European umbrella organisation of national 
environmental counselling associations, has been commissioned by the 
Austrian Ministry for the Environment to take part in the design and 
running of a symposium entitled:

"QUALIFICATIONS IN THE ENVIRONMENTAL SECTOR - MARKET OPPORTUNITIES"

The symposium will be held on 19 March '97 in VIENNA, Austria.

The symposium will primarily focus on the question whether and in what 
form better professional qualifications in the environmental protection 
field do enhance chances and opportunities on the labour market. We are 
particularly interested in new and innovative forms of environmental 
training which have a track record of success on the market, new 
professions and areas of expertise which increase personal oportunities, 
examples and case-studies which demonstrate how environmental 
qualifications have influenced socio- economic developments, curricula 
and educational approaches in environmental science and conservation at 
all professional and academic levels.

To achieve the best possible coverage of different approaches, models and 
forms of environmental training as they relate to the above areas of 
interest, we are looking for several key-note speakers for the above 
symposium. Speakers should have considerable experience in the field, 
ideally in the areas of environmental science curricula, 
environmental training programmes, or the link between environmental 
qualifications and market chances. We particularly encourage experts who 
have hands-on experiences and can present several case-studies to forward 
a tender.

In exchange for an appropriately professional fee, speakers will be 
required to give a 45- minute presentation and participate in one or two 
workshops of not more than 2-hours duration each. 

All costs (return travel to Vienna, hotel-accommodation, etc.) will, of 
course, by covered by the organisers !

Please contact us with a short outline of your professional background 
and experiences in the environmental field, the proposed title of your 
presentation and any other relevant information which may be of interest 
in the context of the above symposium.

We look forward to hearing from you

Regards
Thomas Schlacher, PhD
