Sustainability leaders from greater Atlanta's higher education institutions, together with stakeholders from the education, business, nonprofit, community, and government sectors, have applied to establish a Greater Atlanta United Nations University Regional Centre of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development (RCE). RCEs commit to implementing the UN Sustainable Development Goals at the regional and local level. With six RCEs in the U.S. and 156 around the world, there are many benefits to supporting collaboration at home, as part of a global movement.
This effort is currently being led by the Georgia Institute of Technology, Emory University, and Spelman College, in collaboration with Agnes Scott College, Clark Atlanta University, Georgia State University, Kennesaw State University, Morehouse College, and University of Georgia. We are just at the beginning stages and are eager to engage more institutions, organizations, and groups.
