AEE International Conferences

Annually, AEE hosts an International Conference that brings attendees together who share the goals of promoting, defining, developing, and applying theories and practices of Experiential Education. AEE is proud to host these leading events annually for present and future experiential educators and practitioners from around the world. 

“I always leave AEE conferences with my head exploding with new info, ideas, and concrete tools to use in my practice and in life, as well as my heart overflowing with the love, kindness, and compassion this community of incredible educators, therapists, and practitioners brings to life in our community. “ -2018 Conference Attendee

“This conference always serves as an energizer for me at a much needed time in the semester.  I always feel more connected and grounded after the conference.” - 2017 Conference Attendee

Regional and Professional Group Conferences

The Region and Professional Group Conferences are aimed at furthering experiential education in its many applications. They seek to strengthen the Association and the field by bringing together its practitioners, supporters – members and non-members – to work, talk, network, play, and learn together in a unique environment that is solely devoted to these objectives and thoughtfully designed for these purposes.

"At my first AEE International Conference, I led a round of 'Screaming Toes' in an elevator. We had the best time! It was the first time I spontaneously played with a group of adults I'd never met before. I had found "my people." - Evan, Member since 2010
