Abstract [en]

This article aims to contribute with knowledge about how transactional learning encounters involved in the spreading of ESD-activities can both enable and limit scaling efforts. In this article, four series of assignments developed through the change project approach (CPA) from Southern Africa are studied as cases for exploring what a conceptualisation of scaling-ESD-activities-as-learning demonstrates enabling and limiting conditions for scaling ESD-activities.  By studying shifts in participants’ understandings as a result of transactional learning encounters the article constitutes a response to the assertion in ESD policy that the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (DESD) was unsuccessful in up-scaling ESD-activities. The article illustrates how the inherent complexity of spreading ESD-activities can be explored and addressed. Through consideration and engagement with the environing conditions and environment(s) in action that are involved in the scaling of ESD-activities, the ‘scaling’ process can enable stakeholder participation as well as development and exercise of agency that has potential to support the sustainability of  ESD-activities.
