Episode #16 ~ Charles Hopkins & the 11th Global RCE Conference

The 11th Global RCE Conference held at the University of the Philippines, Cebu was held from December 7th-9th folks from many places around the world gathered to focus on pathways towards education for sustainable development. I was honored to be one of those folks gathered there and I can tell you right now it was a surreal experience. Besides the 24 plus hours of travel in order to get there and finding myself presenting just over 12 hours later, being on the other side of the planet for the first time, in a tropical climate filled with Christmas cheer everywhere, after a long layover in the futuristic airport of Seoul, Korea, well, let me just say this all still feels like it was something out of a dream.

There’s a whole lot I’ve still yet to unpack from these few days spent in Cebu. Thankfully, just before flying back from this incredible experience, I was able to sit down with Charles Hopkins to reflect on the conference and he was kind enough to share some general wisdom that I found encouraging and valuable. This episode is also filled with a handful of amazing songs from live performances we were treated to during our stay there.

Thanks for tuning in, folks!
