UNU IAS RCE means that the Espoo center is part of the network created by the United Nations University (UNU) and in particularly its UNU-IAS - Institute of Advanced Studies as one of the Regional Centres of Expertise (RCE). These RCEs are founded to promote sustainability and Education for Sustainable Development during the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable (DESD), 2005 - 2014. Together RCEs create a global learning space for sustainable development. R&D Group for UNU IAS RCE Espoo has long roots. Already in 2006 Professor Mauri Åhlberg has been involved in efforts to create a RCE in Helsinki Region and in Finland. The final success became when two members of my R&D Group of Education for Sustainable Development, Dr. Paivi Immonen and Ms. Mari Nuutinen, MSc. were able to get the whole Espoo municipality involved. Many organizations are taking part in UNU IAS RCE Espoo, including from University of Helsinki two other of my R&D Groups: NatureGate R&D Group and the main R&D Group of Education for Sustainable Development.
