Highlighting the need to solve emerging sustainability issues through collaborative approaches, RCE Greater Atlanta will host a track, ‘Transforming Education and Society through University-Community Partnerships’ at the Inaugural Annual Atlanta Global Studies Symposium on ‘The UN Sustainable Development Goals in Education, Research, and Community Engagement.’

The track will engage academia and community partners in conversation on diverse approaches, successes and challenges in implementing the SDGs through research, teaching, service and community development.  The three sessions will bring together scholars and practitioners - including members of regional and global RCEs - with an aim to educate the broader public on the foundations of ESD; share the ways in which RCEs around the world are advancing ESD in their regions; and facilitate partnership within RCE Greater Atlanta and with other RCEs around the world.  Additionally, RCE Greater Atlanta will contribute to the poster fair and table exhibits to showcase collaborative projects on sustainability and offer new networking opportunities.

The Symposium will take place from 25-27 April, 2019, with RCE Greater Atlanta’s sessions taking place on 26 April, 2019.
