Transforming Education for Sustainable Futures

We are a GCRF funded Network Plus, co-ordinated out of the University of Bristol, working with partners in India, Rwanda, Somalia/Somaliland, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. We undertake collaborative research to Transform Education for Sustainable Futures.

TESF is a multi-million pound GCRF funded research programme that supports collaborative research to Transform Education for Sustainable Futures.

The programme addresses the role of education in climate action, decent work and sustainable cities. Cross-cutting themes such as poverty reduction, gender equity, ethics, inclusion, and indigenous knowledge provide contextual nuance to the research.
