Adopt a Delegate
The 9th World Environmental Education Congress is proud to introduce the ‘Adopt a Delegate’ initiative, giving prospective delegates from a developed world setting the opportunity to adopt or part finance the registration and accommodation costs of a peer from low-income countries. Delegates can support other delegates by donating any amount they feel appropriate during their own online registration process. To encourage co-ownership of the project, adopted (sponsored) delegates will carry financial responsibility for return travel to the Congress, while the donated money will be used to help offset costs for registration and/or accommodation.
WEEC 2017 recognizes that most people from emerging countries don’t have the financial resources to attend meetings outside their country. With this initiative WEEC 2017 hopes to provide additional opportunities for those researchers and practitioners to attend WEEC 2017, exchange information and set up a network with researchers and practitioners from all over the world attempting to help the sponsored delegate’s research both now and in the future.
We hope that many delegates will participate as ‘sponsors’ and would like to thank everyone for their consideration and support. All ‘sponsors’ will be acknowledged on the Congress website.
