Congratulations to RVS-member Farhana Borg on her successful defence!
On Friday 8 September Farhana Borg defended her thesis in educational sciences at Umeå University. The title of the thesis is "Caring for people and the planet: preschool children’s knowledge and practices of sustainability" .
The overall aim of this study was to enhance the existing knowledge about preschool children’s learning for sustainability in Sweden. The objectives of this study have been to investigate and compare the knowledge and self-reported practices of sustainability among children attending eco-certified and non-eco-certified preschools, respectively, and to explore the extent to which preschool- and home-related factors are associated with children’s knowledge and practices of sustainability.
