The AUN Thematic Network on Ecological Education and Culture has key missions to develop a generation of Southeast Asians who will have the mindset and competencies to conserve and preserve the environment through ecological education as they face the challenges of social change and economic growth. As a network, AUN-EEC will draw on the expertise from members and partners to:

  • Propose curricula/modules/materials that can be used in ecological education
  • Undertake initiatives that encourage students and faculty to support a sustainable lifestyle
  • Raise awareness on critical issues

AUN-EEC has the following key objectives:

  • To serve as a platform to help HEIs incorporate formal and informal ecological education in the ASEAN;
  • To develop cooperation among HEIs toward actions that promote a culture of sustainability among ASEAN stakeholders; and
  • To contribute to the solution of ASEAN social and environmental problems


AUN-EEC was established in 2018 and the secretariat is based at Ateneo Institute of Sustainability, Loyola Schools, Ateneo de Manila University.
