— WHAT ACTUALLY EEE IS? —
Experiential Educators Europe is a free, unofficial, democratic people organization. The main common interest is experiential learning. Members meet, at least, once a year, during the annual conference, somewhere in Europe to share their knowledge, exchange their experience and reinforce their relation with other european collegues.
— About conference —
Since 1997 this annual conference has provided a unique meeting place for experiential educators, trainers, therapists, teachers, coaches and others who are interested in sharing, discussing and challenging their knowledge, methods and techniques. It took place in nearly 20 countries, from Türkiye to Alaska, Taiwan and on board a ship sailing across The Mediterranean Sea. All of the previous 27 editions of the Conference were organised by and for educators and trainers of experiential education, who in effect developed an exceptional fellowship. Each event is a great opportunity to share own skills and take part in dozens of workshops from all around the world. Every year a new host is collectively chosen by the EEE community.
— How it works —
What sets us apart from most other practitioner conferences is our completely informal structure together with our belief that everyone who attends (whether ‘new’ or not) has something to share that others can learn from. This means that the workshops are provided by participants. There are no paid speakers. Everything is voluntary and is organised by the group.We do not have conference themes. The people who come shape what the conference is about, under the broad and flexible banner of ‘experiential learning’. So on the first day we work all together to create a programme that try to satisfy most of people expectations. In this way we provide a democratic and informal process, open to all participants.The real challenge is then to choose among the many different and interesting workshops!!Every year the conference is hosted in a different country of Europe. On the last day, in the plenary session, those who offer to host the next year conference are presented and then voted. Hence the next hosting country is chosen.
