Sheridan’s role as a partner in the recently established Peel Regional Centre of Expertise (RCE) on Education for Sustainable Development comes at a time when it’s recognized postsecondary institutions need to play a central role in helping to resolve growing interlinked social, environmental and economic crises.

Postsecondary institutions throughout the world are engaged in advancing Education for Sustainable Development at a local level and through international collaboration, including engagement with and action on the Sustainable Development Goals.

How are postsecondary institutions empowering learners to develop the competencies for environmental integrity, equitable economic viability, and a just society while also helping them fulfil their own potential? How is this interdisciplinary work supporting transcultural values and practices as well as the development of critical global citizens?

The webinar includes speakers from three postsecondary institutions engaged as partners in Regional Centres of Expertise (RCE) on Education for Sustainable Development throughout the world who will address these and related themes and explain how their institutions are carrying out this critical work.
