We are glad to announce the release of the final report of the ReSET project “Governance of Global Environmental Change: Towards a multidisciplinary discussion in tertiary environmental education in the former USSR and Mongolia”. The report marks the completion of the project that spanned from June 2011 to August 2014. The report can be downloaded here.

The ReSET project strengthened inter- and transdisciplinary approaches in Ukraine, Russia and Belarus by facilitating activities around summer and winter schools in these countries. Most participants where PhD students from a natural science or engineering background, involved in teaching activities at their home universities. The main aim was to complement their strong expertise in one discipline with interdisciplinary skills in environmental governance and to introduce innovative teaching formats.

The project contributed to improving the quality of teaching through the solid performance of project participants in developing not only environmental governance content, but also in developing methodological skills, knowledge and expertise in both interdisciplinary social sciences research and interdisciplinary teaching methods. Furthermore it helped participants gain access to an international professional network, allowing mutual support and further development of the acquired skills.

The full report summarises information about the activities that have been conducted in the context of the ReSET project, as well their respective impact and possible future developments.
