The City of Umeå and Cao Giay District in Hanoi, Vienam have collaborated on Education for Sustainable Development in several projects over several years. They are now exploring how the partners will work for the 2030 Agenda, especially Goal No.4 on Quality Education, but also with the goals and strategies for the Global Action Program on Education for Sustainable Development (GAP) – the follow-up programme to the United Nation Decade on Education for Sustainable Development (2005-2014). I was invited to this partnership as lecturer on The 2030 Agenda – its background, as well as on the role of education. The partnership between The City of Umeå and Cao Giay District in Hanoi is funded by Swedish International Centre for Local Democracy (ICLD).
