RCE Saskatchewan Invitation and Website Upgrade

RCE Saskatchewan Members and Supporters:

This posting is to notify you of two opportunities outlined below:
(1) an invitation to share information about Education for Sustainable
Development (ESD) projects and research occurring in our region at a
global level through the UN University RCE network; and
(2) to provide information regarding the recent upgrade of our RCE
Saskatchewan website (www.zebra.anatexis.net)

Default Screen Resolution

Hello, I was wondering what the majority of RCE Saskatchewan users have for their default screen resolution settings. I've noticed some issues with the site design for settings around 800x600.

I have set up a poll and would like to hear from you. Please respond so I can see what the majority of users use, and perhaps re-design the site accordingly over the next little while

What does RCE on ESD stand for?

RCE stands for Regional Centre of Expertise and ESD stands for Education for Sustainable Development

Minutes from "RTG General Meeting" on 2006-12-01 14:45

Attendance: Roger Petry, Curt Schroeder, Lyle Benko
Regrets: Tim Maciag, Keith Fortowski Time: 2:45-3:30 p.m.
Location: Teleconferencing using Skype

1. Initial Update (Lyle Benko)

  • Lyle Benko indicated that in meeting with Chuck Hopkins representing the United Nations University, Chuck had indicated that the SK RCE was unique among RCEs in the technological approach we were undertaking.
  • Lyle also indicated how our technological work provided an essential component of the workings of an RCE at a regional level in a way that made collaborative work efficient. It was noted that with the SK RCE Web site and the use of teleconferencing technologies (such as Skype used for this meeting), committees would be able to generally meet at a virtual level and then periodically meet for face to face meetings for both business and socializing. It was noted that virtual meetings enabled more people to attend, could occur in bad weather conditions (such as the blizzard today when people could connect from home), or to fit into people's busy meeting schedules.
  • Skype was identified as a very useful technology as it allowed conference calls that included both those with Skype and those simply on a regular telephone line. Lyle noted a slight delay with his phone line. Currently both those using Skype through their computers and phone calls within North America are free. It was also noted that web-cameras could be used with Skype as well, both to see others and see the image one is projecting to others.
    • Action Item: Curt will develop a link on the SK RCE site explaining the reasons to use Skype for our regional committees, how it can be used with our committees, directing people to a how-to link on the Skype Web site, and providing any further additional comments that might help our RCE committee members.
    • Action Item: Lyle Benko will provide further background on an SCN project related to our SK RCE work.
