About the project

Our societies face cross-border challenges, culturally and socially. Above all, social professions require an increasingly greater competence and ability to handle these societal changes.


The aim of the project is to develop, through Challenge-Based Learning, methods to improve and promote well-being and sustainable learning based on social and professional aspects in global and local environments. The aim is to investigate how well-being and learning can be understood and to investigate the application of challenge-based learning in a multicultural environment.


The overall research question for this study is: How can well-being and (sustainable) learning be understood in a multicultural environment?

There are two main goals in this project:

  1. To identify driving forces around reflective learning in personal and professional development in a multicultural environment
  2. To empirically contribute to investigating the use of Challenge-Based Learning in an educational context in the encounter with multicultural learning environments.
