Regional Centres of Expertise: Innovative Networking for Education for Sustainable Development
Fadeeva, Zinaida; Mochizuki, Yoko
Journal of Education for Sustainable Development, v1 n2 p229-237 Sep 2007
The concept of Regional Centres of Expertise (RCEs) on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) has been enthusiastically embraced by a diverse array of actors since it was first introduced by the United Nations University (UNU) in 2004. An RCE is conceived of as a "network" of existing organisations of formal, nonformal and informal education, mobilised to promote ESD at the local-regional level. Derived from experiences of mobilising RCEs around the globe, this article offers a range of strategic concepts to explain and facilitate the transformation of RCEs into value-adding localised networks constituting a global network--an emerging "Global Learning Space for Sustainable Development".
