EfD featured in The International Association of Universities and BBC Production

The EfD Initiative is delighted to present its latest featured audiovisual project: Aiming Higher, a production development by the The International Association of Universities and the BBC's Story Works Production.

The objective of this collaboration is to show how universities and programs are shaping sustainable, democratic societies, and helping to tackle some of the biggest challenges those societies face. The film highlights how  universities and programs contribute to these goals: through projects that work towards sustainable development, internationalization, leadership and innovation.

EfD's film shows the specific case of  the ESAforD Collaborative Program in the EfD Tanzania center and how high rates of deforestation in are threatening the country’s bee population, and putting the livelihoods of farmers at risk and how The Environment for Development Initiative, an international project headquartered at the University of Gothenburg, is working to create a greater understanding of the value ecosystems provide – locally and globally.
