Visby Conference:


23 participants from 8 countries within the Baltic Sea Region (Latvia, Belarus, Estonia, Sweden, Poland, Russia, Ukraine and Lithuania) met on October 2012 in Visby and agreed on a need to support capacity development among ESD-related practitioners, policy makers and researchers in different sectors of society at large.


It was also agreed on a bottom-up approach to fill gaps of different kinds: between the theory and rhetoric of SD and ESD and actual SD and ESD practice; between the three SD dimensions (economic, social and environmental); between levels (local, regional, national and international) and types of organizations (governmental, non-governmental, public and private) as well as within the groups of practitioners, such as teachers and teacher educators within the formal education or educators within the non-formal and informal sector, researchers and policy makers.
