citat What and how are we learning through place-based learning processes in a global-local context towards sustainability? citat

The purpose of my research is to highlight how a global dimension could be created in education and teaching towards sustainability. A special attention is paid to how the implementation process locally interacts with a global context. The variation of knowledge formation for sustainable development in global-local settings is studied. `Global Learning for Sustainable Development´ (GLSD) is introduced. My Doctoral Thesis Learning and teaching sustainable development in global-local contexts is available here!

Good news is that I continue to collaborate with some colleagues on educational development and research in my field thanks to the finansiation approved by the Swedish Institute for Educational Research (2017-2019) for Opening up new spaces for preschool education in a diverse and migrating world.
