Abstract [en]

The pilot project Lund Calling is a step for initiating the process of learning about sustainability issues in global–local settings through the implementation of the Young Masters Programme (YMP). Lund Calling was originally started by the Municipality of Lund to promote education for sustainable development (ESD), giving pupils from grade 8 up to the completion of upper secondary level the opportunity to study the YMP within the framework of their regular studies. This was to be accomplished by the construction of a local course, considered to be “a raw model” for all schools in Lund. A number of schools were specifically selected by the Department of Education in the Municipality of Lund to participate in the pilot project Lund Calling. Alongside with the educational pilot project, a research project was also to be conducted. The aim of the research project was to analyse and describe pupils’ and teachers’ experiences of the pilot project. Later, interviews with headmasters were also included. The purpose of this empirical investigation is, in other words, not to evaluate or assess the effectiveness of the initial attempts to implement the YMP at schools in the Municipality of Lund, but rather to contribute to the further development of the implementation processes, by capturing some of the experiences, voices and engagement of the many stakeholders and participants. Preliminary findings were presented during a seminar (2008) at the International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics (IIIEE) at Lund University, which was addressed to participants from schools in Lund. Findings were also presented at the international conference initiated by the Regional Centre of Expertise on education for sustainable development in Skåne (RCE-Skåne): EU as Global Actor – The pilot project Lund Calling 2009. European Conference on Education for Sustainable Development: Community based learning – Bringing the World into the classroom (Nordén & Anderberg, 2009).

The YMP is offered by the International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics at Lund University.

In the second section, the design of the empirical investigation is described, while in the last section, the results of the empirical investigation will be discussed. Some conclusions are presented, and further steps in the implementation process are suggested.
