DOCUMENTATIONS WEEC2015 Side event RCE -GAP at C 444 Humanisten



           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
