Beginning of our Case Studies series !

The Sustainable Sweden team is proud to announce the publication of the first article for our Case Studies series!

In our case studies, we propose to discover the work of ecomunicipalities: their approach, the actions implemented and the difficulties they encounter. The very first one is about Hudiksvall, a Swedish ecomunicipality. We interviewed Åsa Terent, Environmental strategist for this city. We hope you will enjoy your reading!

You will find the case studies under “Resources” in the menu.

Upcoming Open Tour for 2017

Great news for 2017 ! The upcoming year marks the 25th anniversary of the Rio Summit on Environment and Development, and even if much has been made in the objective of creating a sustainable earth, there is still a lot of issues that need to be taken care of.

We are then starting to plan an open Sustainable Sweden Tour for spring or summer 2017. This time, we plan on making this tour accessible to any individual, or organization interested. Anyone interested in taking part in a SuS Tour is invited to contact us to get more detailed information.

Preparing a Sustainable Sweden Tour takes some time, as we have to contact sometimes hundreds of hosts and guests alike. Furthermore, we have to carefully establish a route across all the Eco-municipalities we intend to visit, and plan accommodation for our guests.

More information about the place and the dates will be available as we advance in our planning in the following months.

If you want to participate or have more information, you can write directly to Torbjörn Lahti at : torbjorn(at)sustainablesweden.org

June 2016 Tour in Sweden

Between the 27th of May and the 6th of June, a delegation from Tigray, Ethiopia joined us for a Tour that took place in Stockholm and later Umeå. The participants got to meet with different organizations, companies, and this time even natural reserves, to learn from these examples. Several conferences were also held in order to assess the progress made within the Ethiopian Eco-municipalities´program.
