About The RCE
RCE Greater Atlanta is a regional sustainability network acknowledged by the United Nations University on December 18, 2017 as a Regional Centre of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development. RCEs support implementation of the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals at the regional level through education and training. The designation makes Atlanta one of only six RCEs in the U.S. and 166 worldwide. RCE Greater Atlanta brings together nine universities and colleges with nonprofit, community, government, and business partners - and we are the only RCE in the U.S. with strong leadership and participation from HBCUs.
RCE Greater Atlanta focuses especially on equity and justice issues inherent in sustainable development. We aim to create a new regional model for collective impact, by harnessing higher education capacity and knowledge for regional benefit – and in the process, better preparing our students to be sustainable development changemakers, in Greater Atlanta and beyond.
We are eager to engage more institutions, organizations, groups, and people. General questions? Please send an email to RCEGreaterAtlanta@gmail.com and we will respond as soon as possible. Interested in getting involved? Email Katherine Martin to be added to our email list.
