RCE Americas Meeting Successfully Builds Connections Throughout the Region

(Adapted from report by RCE Greater Atlanta)

The 12th Americas Regional Meeting was held in a hybrid format from 27-29 September 2023 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, hosted by RCE Greater Atlanta under the theme 'Youth Engagement – Empowering Our Youth to Be Changemakers'.

The Meeting stood as a vibrant forum, where individuals gathered from all around the Americas to exchange views, share ideas, and delve into the discourse of sustainability.

The participation of working professionals, academics, and students created a productive dialogue among the many panels, presentations, and workshops held over the three-day meeting. Each cohort was able to contribute a unique perspective on how sustainability plays a role in their own work, creating an environment where mutual learning fostered collective growth amongst attendees.

The Meeting not only allowed for interpersonal connections, but promoted conversations around intergenerational education and its importance as new generations fill the roles of those before them.

The Global RCE Service Centre would like to thank the team at RCE Greater Atlanta for their wonderful contributions and efforts organising a successful 12th Americas Regional Meeting, and to all participants for their active participation and contributions.
