Event Description


This project is based on a holistic approach to issues related to sustainability. The project integrates environmental, social and economic issues into teaching, involving children and young people in the learning process, and preparing them for the future. Our point of departure - a holistic view on education, includes a critical place-based pedagogy that uses the community and their resources as a foundation, emphasising interdisciplinary teaching and learning and promoting a democratic empowering educational setting. The aim with such a setting is to provide students with a sense of agency, and to recognise them as producers of their own knowledge. The overall aim with this event is increased dissemination of knowledge on how to teach and learn about sustainability.


The event and associated deliberations aim at improving the understanding of the array of activities within the project as a whole, and the range of strategies that underpin these educational activities, in relation to the Storyline approach as well as to issues of sustainability. The event will also stimulate and facilitate long-lasting communication and collaboration between teachers, teacher educators, researchers and other organisations, in our effort to support further work with developing education for sustainability. Specifically, this event will most likely result in: Greater understanding of how to improve monitoring education that includes sustainability issues.


Enhanced knowledge for implementation of sustainable development and resilience for pedagogical planning and practice Increased dialogue and communication space for pedagogical practice and research Enhanced support for rethinking education for sustainable development in schools Knowledge of how to further improve the link between the Storyline approach with issues of sustainability, and student-centred education. To analyse the main opportunities and challenges for the different means of implementation to advance the Storyline approach in relation to sustainable development Key information and follow-up products that will be produced and disseminated during and after the event will comprise the following:


  • Event report
  • Web publications
  • A toolkit for implementation


The participants in the multiplier events will be organisations and school boards that can be interested in the findings made by the project. The intention is to spread the results, such as guiding templates, mentoring booklets, instructive video films, and research results in the form of academic articles, from the project. That is to share our resource bank, created during the project. The resource bank will contain research articles, research podcasts, filmed lectures, teachers planning and Storyline templates, inspirational films etc. In the final year of the project we will employ an organisation that can curate and further develop the resource bank. A long-term effect will be to strengthen organisations' collaboration and networks both locally and internationally.


This dissemination conference will be organised as a one-day conference. We will combine lectures, seminars and workshops. The aim is to find new ways of developing Storyline as a method to reach learning for sustainable development. The project includes researchers from three different universities and countries, to study classes of pupils working with the new Storyline templates, to examine the activities and the teaching and learning outcomes, which will give the researchers the opportunity to discuss their findings with students, teachers and amongst themselves. This is a way to produce new knowledge of educational processes. The findings will be presented and thus shared with experts on the Storyline method, and then shared on a website.


The process, findings and results will be presented and shared during the dissemination conference in Stockholm, through workshops and seminars. The result from the internship-related research can be used in can be used in pedagogical discussions within teacher education, teacher in-service education and school development and be useful in all developing future oriented curricula. In the long term, innovative practices could have a positive impact on human behavioural changes for individual preferences, consumption habits, and lifestyles, the basis of much of life on Earth.
