Minutes of European RCE meeting held at the Global RCE Conference in Cebu, during the Regional Parallel Sessions: Saturday, 8th December 2018, 9:00 - 10:30, Cebu

On 27th April 2017, the Regional Centre of Expertise Czechia was officially launched. After more than a year of efforts by the Charles University Environmental Centre, 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 Centres 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 .
