More members sought for sustainability education network

United Nations University is calling for applications for new Regional Centres of Expertise (RCE) on Education for Sustainable Development.

An RCE is a network of existing formal, non-formal and informal education organisations mobilised to deliver education for sustainable development (ESD) to local and regional communities. A network of RCEs worldwide will constitute the Global Learning Space for Sustainable Development. RCEs aspire to achieve the goals of the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (DESD, 2005-2014), by translating its global objectives into the context of the local communities in which they operate.

Eight new RCEs were officially acknowledged in March, bringing the global total to 55.  The new RCEs are Greater Mbarara (Uganda), Zomba (Malawi), Maputo (Mozambique), Swaziland, Hamburg and Nuremberg (Germany), West Midlands (UK) and Cha-am (Thailand).
