Managers – Agents for Sustainable Development

The main goal of the project is to increase the capacity among a selection of managers of school areas, schools and pre-schools to support education for sustainable development (ESD) which contributes to behavioural change, readiness and capacity to act for change based on the 2030 agenda for sustainable development. Results that the partners work to achieve are the same for both partners.

Intermediate objectives:

  • To develop a functional and agreed action- and work-plan for the managers
