    UNU-IAS Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) Project launched a new publication, ‘RCE Contributions to a More Sustainable World: Celebrating Five Years of Innovative Projects on Education for Sustainable Development (2015-2019)‘ on 22 May 2020.

    The publication highlights and celebrates some of the outstanding contributions that Regional Centres of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development (RCEs) have made to implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through education at local and regional levels, during the first five years of the SDGs as well as the Global Action Programme (GAP) on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) from 2015-2019.

    Featuring 12 education projects which have all been recipients of the RCE Awards over the last five years, the collection of case studies demonstrates how RCEs have addressed local sustainable development challenges with innovative solutions, and provide diverse examples of how the SDGs can be implemented at the local level through quality education, training and public awareness. Furthermore, the projects highlight how distinct sustainable development capacities, expertise and resources within the global RCE network have been drawn upon to implement transformative learning to foster sustainable development.
