cooperation is based on historical, cultural, and

geographical factors. Examples of successful

cooperation are joint educational projects

aimed at improving the ESD framework and

its practical implementation. The results of

joint projects between the two countries

have been analyzed in the context of mutual

interests of Russia and Sweden and new goals

for cooperation have been outlines. (Less)
