Sweden is known for being very forward thinking when it comes to environmental sustainability. But what does that actually mean, and what is Sweden’s view on environmental sustainability? We have invited you to come along on a study visit to Sysav and meet a representative from Sysav, an organization that aims to create the world’s most sustainable region, to guide you through the basics of the Swedish environmental mindset and the cultural clashes that may occur.
