In Sweden, cash is no longer king

When you ask people on the shopping streets of Stockholm when they last paid for something in cash, many have to think a bit. Was it yesterday, or perhaps last week? Digital payments via card or mobile app have become so widely accepted that many Swedes no longer carry cash at all. Indeed, there is such a high level of trust in the digital transaction system, that even children often pay with their debit cards.

B-roll: Moving an Arctic city offers the chance for reinvention

Moving house can be stressful enough, but what about moving an entire city? Sweden’s northernmost town of Kiruna is doing just that. A city of less than 20,000, yet one of the biggest municipalities in the world in terms of area, Kiruna has been forced to move or risk sinking into the earth. Mining the vast seam of iron ore running beneath the town, the same iron ore on which the city has grown rich, now poses a threat to Kiruna’s survival. As the relocation plan moves into the “operational phase”, Kiruna looks towards the chance for reinvention, attracting new talent, and long term growth.

Dignity and accessibility: life on equal terms for those with disabilities in Sweden

About 1.5 million people in Sweden have a disability of some kind. The principal goal of Sweden’s disability policy has long been to ensure that people in this group have power and influence over their everyday lives. A subtle yet important shift is happening however, where inclusion in society of those with disabilities is considered a question of democracy and human rights, rather than viewed in terms of social and welfare policy.
