    Abstract This e-book was developed to assemble practical examples of heritage knowledge and social innovation in the context of Regional Centres of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development (RCEs). The perspectives and examples selected have been organized using an expanded WEHAB (Water, Energy, Health, Agriculture and Biodiversity) framework of the Millennium Development Goals. These locate the situated learning and innovation in RCE homestead and household contexts of heritage-led social innovation. Here shared areas, meeting places and learning spaces like the commonage of a village, (Idlelo – Xhosa), community meeting places (Dare – Shona) or the hearth in a homestead (Eziko – Xhosa) are explored as sites of heritage engagement and innovative learning interaction. RCE initiatives across the region resemble and resonate with these examples of traditional sites of co-engaged deliberation and innovation.
