Regional Centre of Expertise  (RCE) North Sweden was launched September 2013 as regional platform for education for sustainable development. The launch was preceded by a pre-study funded by The Nordic Council of Ministers and The City of Umeå and an application to United Nation University – Institute for the Advanced Studies of Sustainability (UNU-IAS) were a several regional organizations signed. My role in this process was to do the pre-study togehter with Barbra Kalla, and to write the application in collaboration with the applying partners. I was also the moderator for the kick-off in September 2013 as well as providing advise in the process after the launch.
