11th Global RCE Conference

11th Global RCE Conference: Education for the Sustainable Development Goals

Cebu, the Philippines
7-9 December, 2018

All 17 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) took centre stage at the 11th Global RCE Conference, which was hosted by RCE Cebu in the Philippines in December under the theme 'Education for the Sustainable Development Goals'. The SDGs offer RCEs diverse entry points to tackle sustainable development issues relevant to their respective regions through education and training at all levels.

Various ESD projects related to the SDGs are ongoing within the scope of the Global RCE Network (all of which are searchable on the RCE Portal). The diversity within the RCE network means that these projects range from curriculums designed for individual schools, to information campaigns from local or sub-national governments, and from capacity-building activities provided by NGOs to local communities, to hands-on training related to sustainable development provided by higher education institutions. Therefore, the diversity and scope of the SDGs provide the perfect context for RCEs to synergise and scale up their own activities around.
