There have been many processes and activities that have served as a ground for wide range of educational developments. Different settings have been favorable to establish development education, global education, sustainable education, citizenship education, multi-cultural education and even more different types of learning.

Change of paradigm on development, global SD processes with local impact and vice versa – individuals having high impact on global agenda, target groups on global development and new players, change of networking from formal to fluid networks, new networking tools – all these perspectives require suitable response.

The project has been developed on the conclusions and challenges defined in the first two phases of Baltic Sea Region Network on Sustainable Development and experience of Latvian Platform for Development Cooperation.
