Follow-up project kicks off in Prague with regional hub meeting

From February to March 2014, four project regional meetings were organised in four regional European hubs that gathered partners from each region to initiate a new international project as a follow-up to the network connections made as part of the MOSUR project. This is University Educators for Sustainable Development (UE4SD), in which the Charles University Environment Center coordinates the Eastern European hub. The first such hub meeting took place in Prague on 2 & 3 February. The purpose of these meetings was to share management and administration issues as well as discuss the first phase of the project which involves each member country mapping its existing professional development opportunities for university educators. Project partners will map national and institutional initiatives, schemes and activities in this area. This data will inform four regional reports and one state of the art report which will be shared at the project annual meeting and COPERNICUS Alliance Conference which will take place from 2-3 October 2014 in Prague, Czech Republic.

Inaugural meeting of the RCE Czechia

On 27th April 2017, the Regional Center of Expertise Czechia was officially launched. After more than a year of efforts by the Charles University Environmental Center, the network was successfully accredited by the United Nations University (UNU). In the Czech Republic, RCE Czechia is the first association of this type, joining the network of Regional Centers of Expertise across the world which today comprises more than 150 such RCE associations. In Central and Eastern Europe, this model of cooperation has been applied only minimally – so far only 4 RCEs have been established in Albania, Russia and Serbia. Full minutes from the opening meeting can be downloaded here.

RCE Czechia is direct follow-up of the MOSUR Project. You can read more about RCE Czechia on its web pages.
