Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship

Swansea University is home to the Secretariat of RCE Wales, a Regional Centre of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship (ESDGC).

ESDGC is an approach which impacts on the University's entire curriculum and management. It enables people to develop the knowledge, values and skills necessary to participate in decisions that will improve quality of life without damaging the planet for the future. It also enables people to understand the forces which shape their lives, and encourages them to promote a more equitable and sustainable world.

Supported by the Welsh Assembly Government, RCE Wales will help ESDGC organizations and individuals across Wales to

  • Research, develop and promote high quality ESDGC activities
  • To mainstream its uptake and impact.  
  • To ensure a more sustainable future for the people and environment of Wales and beyond.
  • To ensure a legacy that will help to achieve a vibrant and secure Wales that lives within its means using only its share of the earth's resources.
