Abstract:This edited volume is produced by the Southern African-Nordic Centre (SANORD): a network of universities from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Botswana, Namibia, Malawi, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The contributors all reflect on the issue of global and environmental sustainability by pondering how to ameliorate and increase the inclusivity of North-South cross-continental collaboration in higher education and research. Topics addressed are disability, class differences, ICT, pedagogy, and climate change.
