Community leaders across Saskatchewan are working every day to protect natural resources and build a strong, sustainable social and economic future. RCE Saskatchewan is a voluntary network of local sustainable development leaders, educators, researchers and UN agencies united under the UN Global Goals. Since 2013, six Saskatchewan sustainability initiatives have earned global recognition from the United Nations University.  Hear about and celebrate the 10 years of groundbreaking collaboration that is forging new paths for a sustainable future in Saskatchewan.

Meet local sustainability leaders and Dr. Charles (Chuck) Hopkins, UNESCO Chair at York University, who will explain the leadership Saskatchewan and the global RCE network are providing in global education for sustainable development.

We hope to see you there!

RCE Kano (Nigeria) ESD/SDGs Secondary Schools Quiz Competition

Greetings from RCE Kano, Nigeria. I hope this message finds  all of you well. As promised, i forward herewith the links to RCE Kano's 2017 ESD /SDGs Secondary schools' quiz competition. I am extremely glad to tell you that the quiz competition has awakened every segment of the region from slumber and has created momentum towards ESD. We were receiving an average of 1008 (one thousand and eight) messages weekly, when it was being aired for 12 weeks in a row with requests for more information, how to join the RCE or get more information on ESD, clarifications, suggestions and calls for continuity and wider coverage. It was indeed one of the most successful public sensitization and reorientation measures on ESD. As a result of the huge success recorded (and still counting), we feel we have to share it with all of you. We plan to make it a national program and we are working towards that right now.
Most sincerely,
Ali Bukar Ahmad
