Thank you very much for all your efforts.

I therefore encourage all RCE Youth to apply and be part of establishing a sustainable future for all. I also hope UNU-IAS will continue their efforts on integrating youth into an appropriate decision making processes so that we could play a decisive role on ESD and work on modalities that will enhance sustainability in the interaction of economics, society and our environment through education for sustainable development.
