RCE Kano (Nigeria) ESD/SDGs Secondary Schools Quiz Competition

Greetings from RCE Kano, Nigeria. I hope this message finds  all of you well. As promised, i forward herewith the links to RCE Kano's 2017 ESD /SDGs Secondary schools' quiz competition. I am extremely glad to tell you that the quiz competition has awakened every segment of the region from slumber and has created momentum towards ESD. We were receiving an average of 1008 (one thousand and eight) messages weekly, when it was being aired for 12 weeks in a row with requests for more information, how to join the RCE or get more information on ESD, clarifications, suggestions and calls for continuity and wider coverage. It was indeed one of the most successful public sensitization and reorientation measures on ESD. As a result of the huge success recorded (and still counting), we feel we have to share it with all of you. We plan to make it a national program and we are working towards that right now.
Most sincerely,
Ali Bukar Ahmad

Notes from First Global RCE Thematic Conference in Okayama, Dec. 5-7, 2017

Please find attached important notes from the First Global RCE Thematic Conference in Okayama, Japan, held from December 5-7, 2017. The 3 conference themes were biodiversity, climate change, and sustainable consumption and production. The meeting notes include links to a number of RCE and UN agency activities working on Education for Sustainable Development. In addition, I have added some quotations from delegates and presenters that I thought were notable. It ends with a few photos including one following the Global RCE Awards Ceremony in which RCE Saskatchewan received an "Outstanding Flagship Project Award" for the "Community Collaboration for Potash Mine Engagement" project. Congratulations to everyone involved in that project, especially the community of Havelock!

Thank you especially to Dr. Adela Kincaid who also attended the conference on behalf of RCE Saskatchewan.

Hopefully you find the notes and the resource materials it links to helpful.
