"Despite the enthusiasm from Swedish society and schools for education for sustainable development, it is not enough to have solitary workshops every now and then. This is why I am drawn to OPEDUCA, because I recognise the need for coordinated efforts to mainstream education for sustainable development, and to integrate it into our social consciousness. I also recognise that we should not just bring knowledge on a plate to people, but also foster co-creation in knowledge and participation in knowledge production, as this will optimise sustainable outcomes".
