​The Youth Virtual Conference (YVC) is an annual event that brings together secondary school students from North, Central and South America, Europe and Africa in real time/virtual space to explore together challenging sustainability issues.  Classes in participating RCE member communities prepare a presentation on the topic which they share with their peers through Blackboard technology in a one-half day conference.  Participants can ask questions and discuss issues, learning from their peers.

This year RCE Grand Rapids was pleased to help RCE Minna, Nigeria hold the first trans-Africa YVC. This successful effort built on training, technical support and day-of-event technology monitoring by our Grand Valley State University IT Department.

RCE Grand Rapids offers this support and the technology platform to any RCE who wishes to host a Regional YVC.
