Experiences of PhD graduates researching and learning for sustainable development in an inter- and transdisciplinary setting

  • Lilian Julia Trechsel


This paper explores the reports of alumni of an international twelve-year project on what is needed to be well equipped to face current global challenges. As future-ready graduates they emphasized the importance of networks and multicultural and multidisciplinary learning settings that went beyond a disciplinary focus. I discuss this in light of diverse spatial understandings of knowledge and a transformative understanding of education for sustainable development.
