In Marrakech in 2013, the 7th World Congress of Environmental Education (WEEC). The rural-urban relationship

The Seventh World Environmental Education Congress will be held in Marrakech (Morocco) from 9 to 14 June 2013.

The previous congresses took place in Portugal, Brazil, Italy, South Africa, Canada and Australia. In the next few months the location of the 2015 congress will be made known, for which numerous candidatures were presented, from Latin America, Asia and Europe, a sign of the growing interest in this important international event.

The proposal to host for the first time a world congress in a country of Arab and Muslim culture was put forward by the Fondation Mohammed VI pour la protection de l’environnement. This is undoubtedly the most interesting aspect of the next edition of WEEC.

Morocco, among other things, is in a state of flux. A new constitution bringing political change has been in force since the end of 2011. A country with a long history and great artistic and natural assets, Morocco has in Marrakech a pearl of international fame.

Another interesting aspect is the theme chosen by the Local Organising Committee: the rural-urban relationship, a particularly sensitive issue in Morocco where, like many other countries, an exodus from the countryside and a strong process of urban migration is being witnessed. In addition, climactic changes are bound to exacerbate the problem of water shortage, strongly felt in Morocco as in many other countries.
