Ecomuna conference – Övertorneå’s 30th anniversary


The National Association for Swedish Eco-municipalities (SEKOM) together with the team of Sustainable Sweden Association have built a virtual conference room called Ecomuna. This program has allowed for trainings, meetings, and conferences between the Eco-municipalities to be done in a cost-effective way and with a low carbon-footprint as the participants didn’t have to travel long distances by plane or car. The best examples are with meetings in which Swedish and American Eco-municipalities took part.
