Ecological Education and Culture in ASEAN: An Overview

The ASEAN University Network on Ecological Education and Culture (AUN-EEC) is a thematic network that serves as a platform for cooperation among universities in the region to create and share knowledge and resources on educational practices that promote and cultivate a sustainable lifestyle and culture. Its key mission is to develop a generation of Southeast Asians who will have the mindset, habits, and competencies to conserve and preserve the environment through ecological education amidst the challenges of social change and economic growth.

Coppersmith Barbet in the Ateneo

The Ateneo Wild celebrates the urban wildlife found in our campuses! With your help, we can collect more information about what wildlife exists in our campuses. You can also help by respecting their space – don’t litter and be more mindful of your consumption and waste. In these ways, we are all doing our part to ensure that wildlife flourishes even in the city.

We hope that urban wildlife will always find a home in our campuses – just like this coppersmith barbet in his cozy, fungi decorated hole, high up in a talisay tree!

Transforming our awareness and love of nature to environmentally responsible behavior

This map features current initiatives on ecological education and practices of sustainable lifestyle, both among AUN member universities and in the entire ASEAN community. We need your help to build this archive and expand our knowledge of ecological practices in our region.
