Sweden – a country less ordinary (Russian)

Sweden – a country less ordinary (Швеция: Очевидная. Невероятная) offers an overview of Sweden. It paints a picture of a nation that’s driven by innovation and leads the way in equality and sustainability.

This image-rich, 100-page book highlights some of the facts, stories and milestones that make Sweden what it is today, with chapters covering society, sustainability, government, equality, culture, history, the Sami, geography, sports, traditions, food, the Swedish language and a timeline of Swedish innovation. Infographics help tell the story and storytelling elements lead the reader on.

Rooted in an agricultural past and propelled into the future through innovation, Sweden is multifaceted and perhaps contradictory. Sweden – a country less ordinary looks at booming businesses, tax-funded welfare, smart cities, cool culture, revolutionising innovations and much much more.

Botanikern, Uppsala

Botanikern is part of a new neighbourhood in Uppsala, Rosendal, developed according to a high sustainability standard. This newly built housing complex literally breathes wood, with a CLT frame and a wooden façade. The natural material is further emphasized by greenery – on the façade, in the courtyard and on the rooftop with its own biotope landscape. Social interaction is also at the projects core, as are circular systems and biodiversity, and living spaces to share, for all.

This film is produced by the Swedish Institute and Architects Sweden in collaboration with Swedish Wood and the Swedish Forest Industries as part of the exhibition Woodlife Sweden. Please contact the Swedish Institute/Sharing Sweden for requests.

Woodlife: Wind turbines

A wind-turbine-tower in wood might sound to good to be true, but is becoming reality on large-scale, through the development by Modvion – a company based on the west-coast of Sweden. A prototype of 30m height has already been installed on the island of Björkö, and larger installations, of about 150 m height, are under current development, inland.

Together change is possible

PAMOJA – together change is possible

PAMOJA – together change is possible

Liliesleaf is one of South Africa’s foremost national heritage sites and a home to extraordinary exhibitions that tell the story of South Africa’s journey towards democracy.

This toolkit is based on the web platform developed by Liliesleaf, in collaboration with the Swedish embassies in Angola, Botswana, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, Namibia, Tanzania, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

The toolkit contains physical material for the embassies to launch the platform locally.

Please note that only the Swedish embassies in countries mentioned above can apply to use this toolkit.

About

Pamoja is a story of international solidarity and a shared commitment to decolonisation and national liberation. It is also a story of the long cooperation between Sweden and ten countries in Africa.

The project will include materials that use this story of solidarity as a basis for conversations about today’s global challenges, in order to create a sense of agency and encourage activism. The idea is to inspire young people of today to invest time and energy into making the world a better place for all. Together, change is possible.

Instructions

The exhibitions will be delivered as print files from SI. English, Portuguese and Swahili versions will be available. You can adjust the size of the exhibition according to your needs. SI recommends creating an outdoor exhibition. Financial support can be used to rent exhibition modules, and buy specific advertising (exhibit) outdoor/indoor space. You can also apply for extra money to build SI´s exhibition modules.

The key to the success of this project is a partnership with tomorrow’s leaders and change-makers, creating events that help people engage and take an active part in the work towards a peaceful, just and equitable world.

The Swedish Institute can assist with suggestions for participation in launches. A list is available with all participants in interviews and films on the Pamoja Web platform and with all activists in the photo exhibition. A good idea might be to mix participants from different countries.

Building blocks

  • Pamoja overview
  • Photo exhibition Together change is possible – 20 activists from 10 countries in Africa on 12 panels, including introduction, share the conviction that solidarity creates change. (low resolution file) Also available in Portuguese and Swahili.                      Please apply and contact us for high resolution prints.
  • Pamoja exhibition (low resolution; includes: instructions (same for all countries) and local version for South Africa (an example of local version). Local exhibition can be compiled using the Pamoja platform, adding new texts and photos on today’s local challenges, in collaboration with the local embassy.
