Event Notice


Trilateral Symposium on Environmental Education and Public Awareness 


The Trilateral Cooperation Secretariat (TCS) cordially invites you to participate in the Trilateral Symposium on Environmental Education and Public Awareness on Friday, August 19, 2022. 


Environmental issues such as climate change and loss of biodiversity are critical global issues that need to be addressed through international collaboration. China, Japan, and the ROK attach great importance to environmental cooperation at both policy and practice levels. During COIVD-19, we have observed the urgency in addressing environmental issues to create a harmonious existence between human beings and the nature. Further knowledge enhancement about environment and sustainable development and encouragement of actual engagement are critical. 


We invite you to join this collaborative endeavor, stay updated about the latest environmental policy trend of the three countries, and share minds of fostering a mindset of sustainability. The Symposium will invite government officials to share CJK’s key environmental policies against the backdrop of COVID-19, and will invite seasoned experts to disseminate knowledge about effective environmental education pedagogies to enhance education in sustainability and environment in the post COVID-19 era. Expert from Education for Sustainable Development from UNESCO and expert from SEAMEO (Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization) will join and enrich the learning and communication by bringing international and regional expertise. 


“Environmental Education, Public Awareness and Engagement” is one of the priority areas for China, Japan, and the ROK in the framework of Tripartite Environment Ministers Meeting (TEMM). TCS supports the trilateral endeavor in environmental cooperation and education, and looks forward to your active participation and contribution to this important agenda.
