SWEDESD's research and development projects aim to be interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary and truly global. We engage in research in social and educational transformation, capacity building, multi-stakeholder partnership and mainstreaming of ESD into education and learning. We create frameworks and tools to scale ESD, both locally and globally, and to promote quality education.
