The UNU RCE of Grand Rapids, Michigan USA seeks to create a virtual conference for the world’s next leaders to dialogue around the regional and universal issues facing their communities as it relates to sustainability.
The world’s dilemmas of tomorrow will be faced by the youth of today and it is imperative that we equip them with the tools to communicate, collaborate, innovate, and problem-solve in order to begin to address these complex issues of sustainability with regard to water, energy, food, etc.
This project seeks to give students and community organizers the perspective and practice of a global dialogue, in hopes that they will better understand the unique dilemmas facing the regions of the world and in turn reveal and embrace the universal themes of sustainable evolution through dialogue, empathy, and collaboration.
By working collaboratively with academic systems, our local communities, and activists across the globe, the Grand Rapids RCE strives to make a positive lasting change in our community and yours.

The YVC was created in collaboration with the United Nations University Grand Rapids RCE (Regional Centre for Expertise) as a part of the Decade on Education for Sustainable Development.
