Online via Zoom

RCE Srinagar, guided by the Asia-Pacific RCEs Coordinating Committee, will organise three webinars for the remaining period of 2020. These webinars will mark the occasions of:

  1. 'Green Consumer Day' focusing on Sustainable Consumption and Production (28 September, 2020);
  2. 'International Day for Disaster Reduction' (13 October 2020); and
  3. 'International Mountain Day' 2020 (11 December 2020).

The first of these webinars, on 28 September, 2020 celebrates ‘Green Consumer Day’ 2020 and will be co-hosted by RCE East Kalimantan, Universitas Jember, RCE East Java (candidate) and RCE Srinagar. RCEs of the Asia-Pacific region are invited to participate in in the webinar, with youth representation encouraged.

Participation in the webinar will help participants understand increasing trends of consumerism threatening sustainability, how to make the right choices when it comes to reducing consumption, reducing footprints, becoming a responsible consumer, and promoting sustainability.

Presenters may choose their own topic relevant to the theme, or may like to consider the following:

  1. What activities is your RCE undertaking in addressing SDG 12: Sustainable Consumption and Production?
  2. How have you incorporated ESD in your Sustainable Consumption and Production activities?
  3. How is your RCE encouraging local communities (schools, community groups, businesses, etc) in making wise, responsible and sustainable choices?
  4. Is your RCE engaged in any unique practices towards making your local network more responsible and sustainable?
  5. RCEs may also consider to present just one or two initiatives in detail rather than many initiatives in brief.

RCEs interested in presenting are requested to email RCE Srinagar (rcesrinagar@gmail.com) by 4 September, 2020, and send their presentation through to RCE Srinagar by 21 September, 2020. Slots will be reserved only after receiving presentations, and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Submitted PPTs should be almost complete, however presenters can make further changes, with final versions to be submitted by 26 September, 2020.
