A new video highlights innovative education projects that have inspired local communities to adopt more sustainable practices such as waste reduction, conservation of energy, and more efficient utilisation of resources. The projects were implemented by the global network of Regional Centres of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development (RCEs) during 2015–2019.
The video introduces the thematic areas, leading institutions, and target audiences of these innovative initiatives. It features some of the projects highlighted in the recent publication Driving Sustainable Consumption and Production at the Local Level: Education for Sustainable Development Projects from the Global RCE Network.
A total of 115 RCE projects focused on SDG 12 (responsible consumption & production) across 31 countries. The projects were implemented as part of the Global Action Programme (GAP) on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD).
The video is available on the RCE YouTube channel.
The Global RCE Network is a platform for facilitating multi-stakeholder collaboration at the local level to contribute towards achieving a sustainable society. UNU-IAS is the secretariat of the network that comprises 188 RCEs across the globe. To learn more about the Global RCE Network, please visit the RCE Portal.
