BIG-EuroRCEmeeting-RCEversion

 

The European RCE Meeting 2016 (#RCELondon2016) will take place at London South Bank University (LSBU) on 23-24 June 2016.

 

In this two-day event hosted by the London Regional Centre of Expertise (RCE) on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and LSBU, participants will focus on finding synergies in the European RCE community and on tackling thematic challenges under the current policy frameworks COP21, SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) and TTIP. They will also aim to identify within the GAP (Global Action Programme on ESD) key priority areas in which RCEs can collaborate.

 

Day Two will centre around Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and migration issues. With a focus on GAP Priority Action Area 5, i.e. accelerating sustainable solutions at local level, a plan from the RCE perspective will be drawn for encouraging local communities and municipal authorities to develop community-based ESD programmes.

 

The programme of the event, which will open with a welcome and introduction to London RCE and London Southbank University Professor Pat Bailey (Deputy Vice Chancellor and Sustainability lead at LSBU), will feature a number of speakers, including:

  • Dr Hugh Atkinson (Schumacher Institute of Sustainable Solutions)
  • Hilary Jennings (Transition Town Movement)
  • Dr Glenn Strachan (LSBU)
  • Dr Deborah Andrews (LSBU)
  • Alia Azoubhy (Humanities Education Centre)
  • Professor Gaim Kibreab (LSBU)
  • Dr Pinar Guner

 

Members of European RCEs as well as anyone interested in becoming an RCE in Europe is also welcome to attend this meeting.

SML-RosBookAn edited book containing a chapter on the RCE movement was recently launched at London South Bank University (LSBU), the host institution of the London RCE (Regional Centre of Expertise) on ESD (Education for Sustainable Development).

The challenge of sustainability: Linking politics, education and learning, edited by Dr Hugh Atkinson and Professor Ros Wade (both from LSBU) and published by Policy Press, has a chapter titled ‘Regional Centres of Expertise (RCEs) as mobilising mechanisms for Education for Sustainable Development’.

With a central focus on the future of people and the planet itself, the book explores the links between politics, learning and sustainability. It argues that, in order to successfully meet the challenges of sustainability, we need a fundamental change in the way we do politics and economics, embedding a lifelong commitment to sustainability in all learning.

The book is structured into four sections:
• The challenge of sustainability – politics, education and learning
• What is to be done? Case studies in politics, education and learning
• What is to be done? Case studies in learning for sustainability from across the globe
• Emerging themes and future scenarios

The book is mainly targeted at academics and students in a variety of related subjects, including politics, public policy, education, sustainable development, geography, media, international relations and development studies. It will also be a valuable resource for NGOs and policy makers.

Dr Hugh Atkinson is Senior Lecturer in Politics at LSBU. He is the author of Local democracy, civic engagement and community: from New Labour to the big society (Manchester University Press, 2012). He is a founder member of the PSA (The Political Studies Association) specialist group on environmental politics. Ros Wade is Professor of Education for Sustainability at LSBU and Director of the international Education for Sustainability programme. She chairs the London RCE on ESD.
