dc.description.abstract This presentation highlights South/North perspectives on what ´Global Learning for Sustainable Development´ on different continents can be today, and what it could mean for the future, if establishing virtual modules focusing sustainability education for teacher educators. The intention is to underline that cooperation and intelligent action is needed on a global scale to resolve the serious environmental threats our modes of production have resulted in. Education for sustainability in schools or universities is still very far from transforming societies or enabling transitions to sustainability. The question is therefore what can global learning mean, if our aim is not only to achieve incremental improvements, but to reverse current trends before crossing even more tipping points? How can we define truly higher education for sustainable development (HESD), while considering unrestrained economic expansion and technological implications? How can we organize our learning for transitions to sustainability, within existing formal education systems? In this pilot project, "Educate the Educators", aiming to improve the quality of teaching towards sustainability in global classrooms, possible types of collaboration between teacher educators concerning professional development, continuous training of active teachers – developing competence by reflections on own practices and joint modules in higher education, this is described and analysed. en_US
