The 12th Americas Regional Meeting will be held in a hybrid format from 27-29 September 2023 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The meeting will be hosted by RCE Greater Atlanta under the theme 'Youth Engagement – Empowering Our Youth to Be Changemakers'. This meeting is intended to be an in-person meeting, with provisions made for a virtual option for those unable to travel to Atlanta.

Youth are the future. RCE Greater Atlanta has made youth engagement a priority since its inception. College students and young professionals from Metro Atlanta and North Georgia have formed a strong network of changemakers who engage in multiple initiatives. Students from multiple institutions share leadership and collaborate to develop and implement programs and projects with community partners. This network of engaged youth brings energy, action, and results to community projects. Their positive impact is being felt by the communities they serve. In return, participating youth develop valuable skills in community-building, communication, and project management.

This meeting will provide an opportunity for RCEs in the region to showcase youth engagement and youth network activity, building on the already engaged coalition of youth across RCEs in the Americas. In addition, we will follow-up on previous conversations and actions agreed upon at the 2022 meeting related to the RCE Americas governance structure.

Further details will be announced soon – for now, please save the date!
