7th Global RCE Conference, Tongyeong, Republic of Korea, September 21-24, 2012

Dear RCEs and candidates,

Trust you are all doing well.

Thanks to all of you, the network of global RCE family has expanded to one hundred (100) RCEs as of February 2012, and at the same time, collaborative relationships within and across RCEs have been strengthened dramatically in the past few years.

It is our great pleasure to announce that the 7th Global RCE Conference will be organised in Tongyeong, Republic of Korea from 21 to 24 September 2012. This year, the Conference will be kindly hosted by RCE Tongyeong and City of Tongyeong. The official invitation and programme will be sent to you in due course but for now we would appreciate it if you would kindly mark it on your calendar and arrange your busy schedule for the Conference.

Some thematic and strategic discussions have been carried on since the last Global RCE Conference in Kerkrade, the Netherlands. We would like to once again encourage you to utilise the RCE Portal (http://www.rce-network.org/elgg/) for further communication and discussion. Those who have any questions in regard to the RCE Portal, please feel free to contact us. In addition, RCE Tongyeong is also planning to open the Conference website shortly. They very much look forward to linking RCEs with their local ESD practitioners including academia, youth, and schools.

More information will follow later. We hope to see you all at the Global RCE Conference in September!

Warm regards,

Sachiko Yasuda
