SWEDESD - Research and learning for sustainable development and global health
We are a transdisciplinary center that co-creates and implements knowledge and innovations to navigate wicked global health and sustainability challenges.
As one of the leading countries of the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (2005-2014), the Swedish government established the Swedish International Centre of Education for Sustainable Development (SWEDESD) at the former University of Gotland in 2008. In 2021, SWEDESD became a center at the Medical faculty at the Department of Women's and Children's Health and merged with Uppsala Global Health Research on Implementation and Sustainability (UGHRIS). Today, SWEDESD is a transdiciplinary research and education environment at Uppsala University targeting learning for sustainable development and global health.
