The Europe Regional Meeting 2020 will be held virtually (online) from 24-25 November, 2020 and hosted by RCE East Midlands under the theme 'Climate Emergency: Joined-up Action'. 

The two-day online event aims to bring together members of European RCEs, and anyone with an interest in collaborative local action and learning for sustainability.

Day one of the event will be open to all, and day two open to current and prospective RCE members. RCE members and others are invited to participate in a range of engaging formats.

Any short talks will be pre-recorded, leaving space during the conference for discussion on talks or interactive online workshops. Presentations and resources will be available to attendees online during the week preceding the event.

The programme includes a wide range of short talks and interactive workshops, addressing local climate action, nature education in schools, climate justice education and much more, along with evening social activities. RCE members are encouraged to provide a short update of their activities at the event through a short document or video clip between registration and the event itself. There will also be many opportunities to discuss shared challenges and opportunities for collaboration for European RCEs.
