The Europe Regional Meeting 2022 (Part II) will be hosted by RCE Fryslân, to be held in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands from 10-13 October, 2022, under the theme 'Greater than the Sum of the Parts; Strengthening the European RCE Network for ESD'.

In response to the ongoing IPCC reports about climate change and other SDG-related challenges that await our youth, participants at the European RCE meeting earlier this year expressed a strong urge to further mobilise the knowledge, skills and energy that is among our members.

After this successful inspirational online session in February 2022, we now have the opportunity to come together to strengthen the bonds, and discuss in person how to continue our cooperation more effectively.

Following two years of connecting online, this will be an exciting and important opportunity to meet face-to-face, to share our experiences as RCEs and to take the next steps for inter-regional cooperation and collaboration within the European region. The central question of the upcoming event is how all regional expertise on ESD can be brought together in such a way that we can support the changes Europe has to make for a thriving future in a sustainable and equitable world.
