4 April - Sustainability

What is Sweden's view on it and what can I do to contribute?

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 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.

We open up for registration about two weeks before the date of the event.

During our events we sometimes take photographs and short film clips to profile our activities. Please let us know if you don’t want to be in any photos/films before we start the event. Thank you!
