Uppsala Transdisciplinary Seminar in Education and Sustainable Development (TRUST)

The Uppsala Transdisciplinary Seminar in Education and Sustainable Development is arranged by researchers at SWEDESD to coordinate a scholarly environment for practitioners, researchers and PhD students who conducts monodisciplinary and various forms of crossdisciplinary educational and sustainable development research.

The purpose of TRUST is to increase the internationalisation of sustainable development research, generate new interfaces, research projects and international publications in collaboration with existing actors in the field. In addition, the seminar aims to coordinate and organise national and international conferences and workshops.

The seminar invites practitioners, researchers and PhD-students from all faculties. Both English and Swedish are used.
