Education in focus at BUP Symposium Online 2020


BUP Symposium 2020 is open for anyone.

On 25-26 August, the Baltic University Programme (BUP) and Uppsala University Campus Gotland will organize a Research Forum for participants from universities in the Baltic Sea Region. SWEDESD will facilitate one of nine theme sessions to highlight the latest research on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in the region.

The symposium was supposed to be held at Uppsala university Campus Gotland but will take place online with a slightly altered programme. The event includes two research conferences for participants from universities in the Baltic Sea Region.

SWEDESD and Åbo Akademi will invite researchers and practitioners to present their latest research in the field of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). The participants represent a number of universities around the Baltic Sea, including Finland, Estonia, Lithuania, Sweden, Ukraine and Belarus.

The other themes of the conference are Climate Change and Renewable Energy, Sustainable Societies, Sustainable Water Resources, Urban-Rural Development, Sustainable Mobility, Circular Economy, Sustainable Tourism, Sustainable Food Systems.

The BUP Symposium 2020 is organised by BUP, Uppsala University, and Hamburg University of Applied Sciences. The aim is to provide an opportunity to meet with colleagues to discuss the latest research and share research in the network. A physical BUP Symposium will take place at Campus Gotland on 23-27 August 2021.
