Overview

Description of RCE and Geographic Region:

RCE Bordeaux Aquitaine is located in the South-Western part of France and has two main partners, the Bordeaux Metropolitan area, the 5th city in France, and the Aquitaine region, the largest administrative region in France and the largest agricultural region in Europe.

Goals and Objectives:

The action of the Bordeaux Aquitaine RCE is determined by two elements: first, progress in ESD resulting from numerous actions developed in the framework of partnerships involving the academic world, communities, socio-economic actors and civil society; second, to implement at the regional level the major international programs and, more particularly, the 2030 Agenda of the United Nations with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the recommendations of the COP 21 with the Framework for Action to Combat Global Warming. The RCE aims, in reference to these approaches, to bring the academic world to grasp the SD issues facing our society, to strengthen cooperation between institutional and non-institutional actors, to contribute to a real dialogue between the different institutional and non-institutional actors of ESD and a public constantly solicited but rarely listened to. Two major actions are being developed: the implementation of the program "Bordeaux, learning city" and the focusing on the adaptation to climate change in cooperation with the academic world and all the actors of the Aquitaine region.
