Regional Centre of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development in Saskatchewan (RCE Saskatchewan)

The Regional Centre of Expertise (RCE) program is an initiative of the United Nations University-Institute of Advanced Studies to help advance the U.N. “Decade of Education for Sustainable Development” (2005-2014).  RCEs allow local organizations engaged in Education for Sustainable Development to collaborate with one another, and to link up with other RCEs around the world. This means collaboration among elementary schools, high schools, universities and technical institutes. Regions identify their own sustainability issues and develop educational activities that focus on these issues, which are all documented and researched.

RCE Saskatchewan involves academic faculty and employees from several higher education institutions in our province, including the University of Saskatchewan.

Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE)

The University of Saskatchewan is a member of AASHE which provides resources, professional development, and a network of support to enable institutions of higher education to model and advance sustainability in everything they do, from governance and operations to education and research. 

The AASHE website has many education and research resources for faculty.  (Note that some resources are available to members only. Anyone with a email address can set up a profile to access all resources.)
