This year’s Johan Skytte Prize laureate, Harvard professor Amartya Sen, will visit the prestigious Rosendal’s high school (Rosendalsgymnasiet) during his stay in Uppsala. Some of the pupils are enrolled in a programme geared towards global issues and sustainable development. An integral part of the curriculum is a field study in developing countries which results in a final report which the pupils need to defend. Most of the pupils use Amartya’s theoretical work in their final projects.
