RCE – GAP ↔ GAP – RCE
AT ROOM C444 Humanisten
For ten years the Regional Centres of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development (RCE’s) have been active in supporting the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development. Now the decade is ended and we are now working on the Global Action Programme (GAP) on ESD.
As there will be a substantial number of RCE´s present at WEEC2015 we will take the opportunity to enable an enhanced discussion on how the RCE networks can support the GAP, and how GAP can support the progress of the RCE networks. What are the roles of the RCEs in implementing GAP, what are the strategic actions to take.
We assume that we are all updated on the Roadmap to GAP so that we can start the session with just a short introduction. If You would like to read more about the RCEs role in this we recommend Building a Resilient Future through Multistakeholder Learning and Action: Ten Years of Regional Centres of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development chapter 9 is by RCE representatives on the same matter. Chapter 8 is by UNU-IAS colleagues on the role of the RCEs in GAP implementation
RCE West Sweden will be the main organizer of this event which means we will use the Open Space method for the discussions. This is the method that we have used throughout our measures. This requires active participation from all of us. We will start off by setting the agenda together in relation to the theme.
We look forward to an engaging evening together. As time will be limited we will unfortunately not have time to conduct any lengthier presentations of what we are up to in our different parts of the world . We therefore suggest You might introduce Your RCE shortly in advance below here.
The event is supported by The United Nations University UNU IAS
