2018 RCE Awards for Innovative Projects on Education for Sustainable Development

2018 RCE Awards for Innovative Projects on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)

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 seventh annual RCE Awards, presented at the 11th Global RCE Conference held in Cebu, Philippines from 7-9 December, 2018 covered projects across the SDGs and themes of Disaster Risk Reduction, Traditional Knowledge, Agriculture, Arts, Curriculum Development, Ecotourism, Forests/trees, Plants & Animals, and Waste. Recipients were awarded across three categories: (1) Outstanding Flagship Project, (2) Acknowledged Flagship Project, and (3) Honourable Mention.

Congratulations to all of the winners!
