English abstract
Sustainable livelihoods, sustainable consumption and production. This Workshop on Sustainable Livelihoods and Sustainable Consumption and Production will be organized by the Global RCE Service Centre. Since 2005 UNU-IAS' Education for Sustainable Development programme hosts the Global RCE Service Centre to support Regional Centers of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development (RECs) world-wide as part of UNU's contribution to the UN Decade on Education for Sustainable Development, 2005-2014. The core idea put forward by UNU is that an RCE is a 'network' of existing organizations of formal, non-formal and informal education, mobilized to promote Educational for Sustainable Development (ESD) at the local-regional level. The Global RCE Service Centre provides assistance to individual RCE (currently 55 have been acknowledged world-wide) which entails facilitating communication, thematic work and global RCE networking. Representatives of RCE Saskatchewan, RCE Kano, RCE Skane, and RCE Rhine-Meuse will address the issues of sustainable production and consumption from the perspectives of their three regions located in North America, Africa and Europe. They will discuss questions of food systems and education, role of ESD in promoting sustainable livelihood, implications of introduction of sustainable livelihood ideology and principles of ''environmental capitalism''. The workshop will begin with presentation of the overall concept of RCEs and a conceptual framework that guides the discussions during the workshop. Four cases of practices, challenges and learning achievements will be presented by the RCE representatives.
