Each RCE empowers people within its community to lead better, more sustainable lives by providing them with the information, education and tools they need to create positive social and environmental change. By creating diverse partnerships among educators, researchers, policy-makers, scientists, youth, leaders within indigenous communities and throughout the public, private and NGO sectors, RCEs are able to provide a framework for strategic thinking and action on sustainability, creating tangible improvements in their communities. Indeed, partnerships are at the heart of each individual RCE and of the global RCE network.

RCE Tantramar strives to support its local partners in their efforts to promote education for sustainable development.  There are so many wonderful ideas and initiatives in our region and we have been pleased to act as partners in a wide range of projects, all with important environmental education components.
