Abstract [en]

The Center for Environment and Development Studies (Cemus) is a student-initiated and primarily student-led university center, straddling the two universities (Uppsala University and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences) inthe town of Uppsala, Sweden.Since its inception in the early 1990s, the center has initiated and expanded the space for transdisciplinary, collaborative higher education as well as research and collaboration that transcends traditional academic disciplines and boundaries between academia and society at large. Based on the idea that the young people of today are key stakeholders of the future, Cemus has for over two decades acted as a platform for students to shape their own education and future, and has also become a creative and international meeting place for the larger university community to discuss and grapple with some of the most pressing sustainability challenges of our time.

In the last few years Cemus has had an increased collaboration with a number of new partners, both within and outside the university, nationally and internationally. Lasting 3 years, and spanning a range of activities, Action for Sustainability in Higher Education in the Nordic Countries (ActSHEN) has been the most comprehensive of these international collaborations that Cemus has been involved in. This paper explores the impact and value of ActSHEN upon activities at Cemus, as well as, the role of Cemus in the ActSHEN project, based on reflections from students and staff that participated in ActSHEN.
