Key Objectives

The application identified six long-term objectives that will guide the work of the local RCE network moving forward. These include:


To recognize the vital importance of Indigenous Knowledge systems as they engage across all curricula


To implement age-appropriate sustainability and stewardship education frameworks from pre-school to secondary school, in both formal and informal settings


To build strong bridges between school curriculum and the spectrum of programs offered at Trent University and Fleming College

To link post-secondary programs and community-based training programs to green jobs, research, and innovation in the region, and



To develop reciprocal exchanges of sustainability knowledge and practice between residents within the region and with communities across the globe.


To facilitate meaningful local action to advance the above objectives in the context of the Global Action Plan priorities
