Established in 2012, the RCE Award celebrates projects and programmes on ESD within the Global RCE Network, honouring RCEs who have made outstanding contributions to address local sustainable development challenges in their regions.

The Award recognises projects and programmes that bridge local and global perspectives on sustainable development, those that engage with transformative learning and research, and initiatives that contribute to community engagement, research & development and capacity development of stakeholders and partners.

The winners of the sixth annual RCE Awards, presented at the First RCE Thematic Conference held in Okayama, Japan from 5-7 December, 2017 covered projects across the themes of Biodiversity, Climate Change, Health and Nutrition, Higher Education & TVET, Sustainable Consumption and Production, Sustainable Livelihoods, and Youth.
