RCE Greater Portland
A UNU-IASS Regional Center of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development
The United Nations University Institute for Advanced Studies of Sustainability has acknowledged greater Portland as a Regional Center of Expertise (RCE) on education for sustainable development (ESD). Joining 127 RCEs around the world, RCE Greater Portland is a growing network of regional educators, students, leaders, and community members collaborating to promote the advancement of sustainability education throughout the Portland Metro region, including Washington, Clackamas and Multnomah Counties in Oregon and Clark County in Washington.
Our mission is to increase the region's collective impact by developing collaborative partnerships, supporting outreach, and offering educational and research opportunities and programs that leverage our collective talents and resources to help us all achieve our sustainability education objectives.
