I've spent the last few days working with the GRESD network in Uppsala. This is a splendid group of Swedish PhD candidates and supervisors interested in ESD issues, one way or another. Between them, the research comprises a rich mixture of topics, approaches and preferences that it is a pleasure to be associated with (as a member of the small 'international scientific committee'). This meeting (the second) was rather usefully augmented by contributions from PhD candidates from South Africa, the UK and Denmark. I'm envious as this network as we have nothing like it in the UK. Perhaps it ought to be developed.
