Happy holidays, everyone!  We hope that your Thanksgiving was beautiful.

As we enter the last month of 2014, we are reflecting on our many efforts over the year.  Not only has GPSEN been accepted as a Regional Center of Expertise (RCE) on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD), by the United Nations University, but we have also been recognized as having an award-winning flagship program for civic engagement! We have joined in the international celebration of RCEs, the Decade on ESD (2005-2014), and the UNESCO World Conference on ESD in Japan and are now invited to move forward in helping implement UNESCO's new Global Action Programme (GAP) on ESD.

This is an exciting time for GPSEN and members across the greater Portland region. The sustainability work of our partners epitomize the UNU's goals of multi-sector collaboration and it is time to celebrate! 

We will be exploring the highlights of the decade, core lessons from the UNESCO conferences in Japan this past month, and the priority action areas in the GAP at this quarter's GPSEN Stakeholder Meeting. Please join us as we plan our pathways together toward a more sustainable future.  See the details below to make sure you can participate and have your voice heard.


We had a great turn-out for our GPSEN Launch in June, but perhaps you missed the party or would like to revisit the festivities.  Thanks to PCC’s video team, you now can!  Watch GPSEN's Launch Party.


If you have events, workshops, conferences, and/or resources that you would like included in the GPSEN newsletter, submit your details via our submission form by the 25th of the month for the following month's newsletter.
