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.
