The Swedish International Centre of Education for Sustainable Development (SWEDESD) is a department of Gotland University, Visby, Sweden. The Centre is mainly funded by Sida, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency. Education for sustainable development (ESD) is about helping individuals, communities and organizations to understand their social, economic and ecological life-support systems and to act based on this understanding to enhance their well-being, without compromising the wellbeing of other people or future generations. SWEDESD is engaged in ESD both directly through its training programmes and indirectly by building capacity for ESD in our partner organisations. Our activities take place in Sweden as well as in Sida’s partner countries.

The SWEDESD staff members posting on this blog are:

Alexander Hellquist, Programme Specialist.
Alexander has an academic background in environmental economics and development studies. His field of expertise lies within ecosystem services, environmental valuation and the green economy discourse.
