Campaign for Knowledge & Learning Week at Expo 2020

In connection to Sweden’s Knowledge and Learning week at Expo 2020 Dubai on 12-18 December, the Swedish Institute provides a social media campaign for all foreign missions.

Our focus is to communicate Sweden as a knowledge nation rather than to solely focusing on attracting on-site visitors to the Swedish pavilion in Dubai. The campaign content is therefore versatile and can be used by all foreign missions, not only the ones close to the Expo site. The goal of the campaign is to spark interest in the programme topics as well as direct people to a digital platform where events will be livestreamed.

The campaign consists of nine different posts created for Facebook and Instagram:

  • 3 posts with more general framing to create awareness around Knowledge and Learning Week at Expo 2020.
  • 6 posts connected to various topics from the programme that we wish to highlight during the week.

When using the campaign, we highly advise that you publish the posts according to the schedule provided. This is to make sure that all interested in participating digitally in the events will be directed to the livestream platform in time.

Make sure to add the name of the photographer available in the text document.

Image Bank Sweden – contemporary images of Sweden

Image Bank Sweden – contemporary images of Sweden

Presenting Sweden abroad? Image Bank Sweden features thousands of quality images and stock videos, all free of charge for you to use – and no registration required. The website offers a curated collection of images from professional photographers. The image bank is a great tool to enhance your story about Sweden.

You can easily find the images you want by browsing the categories or using the search function. You can download them for web, in high or full resolution, or choose to embed it. Image Bank Sweden will continuously be updated with new pictures of Sweden, so hopefully you will find something new every time.

Image Bank Sweden is administered by the Swedish Institute and Visit Sweden. It is a cooperation with Business Sweden and the Swedish Government Offices, including the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Enterprise, Energy and Communications. Together all of these organisations are called the Council for the Promotion of Sweden (NSU).

The NSU works to ensure the coordinated and long-term promotion of Sweden abroad. The purpose is to achieve political objectives; promote trade; attract investment, tourists and talent; and encourage cultural and scientific exchange.

Instructions

If you want to download or publish an image, please read our Terms of Use available in the upper right hand corner at the website https://imagebank.sweden.se/.

Always remember to credit the photographer by clearly stating the photographer’s name plus imagebank.sweden.se in connection with the photo, for example “Credits: Anders Tedeholm / Image Bank Sweden“.

Images or videos from Image Bank Sweden may not be used in Sweden towards a Swedish target group. An exception is the NSU organisations. These organisations are allowed to use the images/videos in their own work – such as publications on their own websites, annual reports, information about the organization, social media, an event etc. Also, if an NSU organisation is the main organiser of an event coordinated with another organisation, it is also permitted to use the images and videos on Image Bank Sweden.

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.

Online book fair 2021

Online book fair 2021

Looking for an easy-to-use toolkit to promote Swedish literature? This unique cooperation between the Swedish Institute, the Gothenburg Book Fair, and the Swedish Arts Council, offers 10 specially selected author conversations, focusing on current trends in Swedish children’s and youth literature. Pick your choice among the seminars listed below, and launch your own online book fair on social media, or use as separate postings.

The toolkit comes complete with authors’ bios and easy-to-use scripts for social media postings.

For the 2020 online book fair material, see below.

Instructions

(1) Make a selection of the seminars you think will attract your target group. A list of available seminars can be found under “Building Blocks” below.

(2) Use the prepared social media posts under Building blocks for each seminar to create own postings on social media channels of your choice (e.g. Facebook, Instagram). Choose whether you wish to use author’s photos or the specially designed banner template for your postings.

(3) Set up a digital event or just share on your social media platform. Decide whether you wish to share the material following a set schedule (for instance one post per day, or three posts in a week), or if you prefer a more improvised approach.

Start the campaign by posting the promotion film below to push for the series in social media. The film comes with a script so that local language can be inserted.

Possible follow-up activities could include Facebook Live events or similar with a local journalist/writer/translator/librarian interviewing a particular Swedish author/critic/publisher on adjacent themes. Visit the #DigitallyYours toolkit for possible formats.
