2020 RCE Awards for Innovative Projects on Education for Sustainable Development

2020 RCE Awards for Innovative Projects on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)

The RCE Awards celebrate 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 2020 RCE Awards covered projects across a spectrum of the SDGs and themes, including curriculum development, disaster risk reduction, waste, traditional knowledge, ecotourism, and quality education. Recipients were awarded across three categories: (1) Outstanding Flagship Project, (2) Acknowledged Flagship Project, and (3) Honourable Mention.

Take a look at the video announcing this year's winners, and see the full list below, including links to each project. Congratulations to all of the winners!
