The Baltic University Programme initiate, coordinate and participate in transdiciplinary projects as a way of supporting the creation of strong educational and research communities. We have two on-going projects:
- Digital at home
We also share information on recently finished projects:
- Two steps: Internationalization in practice

BSRCCC is short for Baltic Sea Region Climate Change Curriculum. The project aim is to develop a course module with teaching materials focusing on the climate change in the Baltic Sea Region. The course module will be available online.
Two steps: Internationalization in practice
The project aim is to strengthen internationalization and universities cooperation with between Belarus, Ukraine and Sweden. This will support our Participating Universities in Belarus and Ukraine to establish contact and cooperation with the Swedish universities, and strengthen Swedish universities' knowlledge of, and interest in academia in these countries.
The aim of this project is to re-think the pedagogy used when implementing education for sustainable development. The SWEDESD Change project Approach is used for the EduBUP project. Participants formed groups who created project plans and ideas on what they would like to change at their respective universities. In a later phase of the project this is followed up on, and launched.
The project aim is to illustrate pedagogical principles and processes that need to be integrated in teaching and learning. Participating teachers will be able to include sustainable development in their education according to Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) principles.
