Education for Sustainable Development


Our focus in both research and education is collaborative transformative learning. We understand sustainable development as a continuous process of searching, learning, and shaping alternative pathways. Actors must be equipped with relevant knowledge and skills to be able to actively participate and take responsibility. University graduates can play key roles as citizens, entrepreneurs, policymakers, researchers, and in many other functions. To build knowledge and foster skills relevant to sustainable development among students, we offer curricula and courses at all tertiary education levels. Furthermore, we support lecturers who integrate sustainable development into their education activities. Findings from CDE’s ongoing research in different fields of sustainability science and in various regions around the world constitute a major source of first-hand insights conveyed in our courses.
