33rd edition of the AMEUS Conference

Culture at the service of environmental movements

Friday February 26th, 2021 from 9 am to 5 pm

on Zoom!

It is with great pleasure that the organizing committee announces that the 33rd edition of the AMEUS Conference (Association de la maîtrise en environnement de l’Université de Sherbrooke) will be presented in a virtual format!

This 33rd edition is inspired by the union between citizen action and culture in all its forms. Culture includes the different artistic expressions as well as the set of values ​​and customs shared by a group of individuals. In short, the Quebec population is diverse in terms of its heritage, and each community has its own vision of the environment and the environmental practices that result from it. The organizing committee hopes that this edition will allow the different communities to mobilize their potential by sharing knowledge, taking action and raising awareness of the environmental cause.

Event open to all! Since the number of places is limited, don’t delay in reserving your ticket (for free)!

For any questions, you can write to us on Facebook or by email at
