Sammanfattning

The goal of this paper is to discuss current
problems of education for sustainable
development, i.e. a global educational
innovation that is actively growing in the
new century. In Sweden, which has extensive
experience in ecological education, education
for sustainable development is considered
a national model for the creation of the
foundation for SD. In Russia, difficulties exist
in defining and achieving SD objectives. It
has been demonstrated that cooperation
between Russia and Sweden in the field of
ESD may prove to be very successful. Such
cooperation is based on historical, cultural, and
geographical factors. Examples of successful
cooperation are joint educational projects
aimed at improving the ESD framework and
its practical implementation. The results of
joint projects between the two countries
have been analyzed in the context of mutual
interests of Russia and Sweden and new goals
for cooperation have been outlines.
