ATEE 2018 Annual Conference – A future for all: teaching for a sustainable society

University of Gävle – Sweden, 20-22 August 2018

The 43rd Annual ATEE conference A future for all – teaching for a sustainable society pays attention to critical questions concerning rapid changes and citizenship in society.

Education has a responsibility to foster skills, attitudes and behavior that will lead to sustainability and inclusive growth. The urgent need to understand the past for building tomorrow with new approaches in education puts important questions in focus regarding human wellbeing, social inclusion, environmental protection and globalization. These perspectives and approaches in research and practice in teaching and teacher education is the central focus of this conference.

The conference aims to contribute to a thought-provoking discussion on these issues by challenging and problematizing the paradigms that are currently influencing research, policies and practices in the education field.
