THE RURAL URBAN RELATIONSHIP – 7th World Environmental Education Congress (WEEC)
9-14 June, 2013
Previous WEEC congresses have taken place in Portugal, Brazil, Italy,
South. This is the first time the conference will take place in a country
of Arab and Muslim culture. Morocco, among other things, is in a state of
flux. A new constitution 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 Organizing
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 occurring. In addition, climate change
is bound to exacerbate the problem of water shortage, strongly felt in
Morocco as in many other countries.

program, registration and conference venue.
