KTH Global Development Hub (GDH)  

KTH Global Development Hub (GDH) was started in 2017 with the objective to develop education which aims at making contributions towards global sustainable development as defined in the UN Agenda 2030 and the 17 sustainable development goals. GDH works in partnership with four universities in Africa: Strathmore University in Kenya, University of Dar-es-salaam in Tanzania, Botho University in Botswana, and University of Rwanda. The partnership involves development of challenge-driven education and student exchange. In the student exchange programs, African and Swedish students collaborate on developing solutions to locally defined societal challenges in Africa and in Sweden. Until 2020 the collaboration was based on physical mobility. The limitations on travel imposed by the corona pandemic have started a development of online versions of challenge-driven education which does not require physical mobility.
The AFRICA-DESIGN initiative within Design Society is an excellent platform for KTH Global Development Hub to develop our collaboration with African universities even further and to enable teachers and students to collaborate and communicate with a wider audience.
