RCE Participation in DESD and RCE Meetings in New York, May 4-7

This is just a brief note to update everyone regarding RCE Saskatchewan's participation in Decade for Education for Sustainable Development (DESD) and RCE events in New York City at the U.N. on May 4-7, 2007. Lyle Benko will be participating in these events on our behalf. We have also received financial support from Environment Canada to participate. Thank you very much Lyle for going to New York for us on such short notice! I am sure Lyle will have many good things to share with us on his return from New York. He will also have specific opportunities to meet with the other RCEs in North America. I would also like to thank Environment Canada for its supportive role of Canadian RCEs to date and, especially in this case, helping defray a significant portion of the costs to enable RCE Saskatchewan to participate in this important event. I imagine Lyle would be quite happy to receive any suggestions or questions any of you might like him to bring forward at these meetings. I will also attach the original documentation sent to us regarding these events that highlight the topics under discussion.
