About this site

Sharingsweden.se offers a comprehensive collection of material about Sweden, produced by the Swedish Institute. The material is intended for an international audience with an interest in Sweden and the Swedes.

On this site, the material is sorted by topic to help you find content for presentations, discussions or events. We have also put together toolkits, which are ready-made sets of tools and instructions on a topic that will provide both ideas and material for your themed event.

Almost all of the material is open to the public and free to use, but a few of the pages are only accessible by Swedish embassies and consulates due to copyright issues.

We hope you find what you’re looking for.

Administration and accessibility

Sharingsweden.se is produced and administered by the Swedish Institute, a public agency that promotes interest and confidence in Sweden around the world. The activities of the Swedish Institute are governed by an annual government directive (only in Swedish), so-called appropriation directions.

Executive editor of sharingsweden.se is Henrik Selin, director of the Department of Intercultural Dialogue at the Swedish Institute.

The site was built with WordPress, a free and open-source publishing platform, and it was developed in close cooperation with digital design agency Söderhavet and technical web agency Fröjd.

We are working actively to increase the accessibility on sharingsweden.se, according to the recommendations of the web content accessibility guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 and the Swedish guidelines for web development.
