Dear RCE Saskatchewan Colleagues,
The 6th RCE Conference of the Americas (that includes participating RCEs from North, South, and Central America) was recently held in Vancouver from September 13-15, 2017. Given its geographic proximity, RCE Saskatchewan was able to send 4 attendees: I attended along with Adela Kincaid, Roxane Wagner, and Jill Forrester. The event was a great success with our being able to meet representatives from two new RCEs: RCE Kawartha (from Peterborough, Ontario) and RCE Georgetown (from South Carolina). Attached you will find notes from the conference highlighting projects from each RCE along with a few photos at the end. I have tried to include links where I could find them. In addition I will attach the final program of the conference that includes contact names for each RCE should you need them. Two tangible outputs coming out of the Conference will be a project database and an experts database for use by our fellow RCEs, the UN University, and the UN system. These will have specific categories tied to the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals and the 5 objectives of the UNESCO Global Action Programme on Education for Sustainable Development. Once this is available for data entry I will let you know.
Thank you to Adela, Roxane, and Jill for an excellent job in representing our RCE.
Roger Petry, Co-coordinator
