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. This publication is available as pdf in English, Swedish, German, Russian, Spanish, Arabic and French. Translations other than the ones mentioned above will have to be organised by the local foreign mission, including print – please contact order@si.se for guidance.

Handlingshjälpen – Дело сердца

Фейсбук-группа Handlingshjälpen (”Помощь с покупками») возникла в Швеции как волонтерская инициатива. Люди постарше, которым рекомендовано оставаться дома, убедились, что окружены отзывчивыми соседями – такими, что с удовольствием сходят за них в магазин или погуляют с собакой. А те, кто помоложе, неожиданно открыли для себя новый круг общения. Ведь дело не во времени, усилии или деньгах – дело в сердце. The film is also available without text for local adaptations.

Celebrating the Swedish way – Traditions and Festivities (in Russian)

Curious about the mythical Midsummer, when Swedes wear flower wreaths on their heads and dance around a suspiciously phallic pole? Or how about 13 December, when Swedes wake up to saffron buns, choral singing and a procession led by Lucia with candles in her hair? In Celebrating the Swedish way we learn how seasons, pagan times, Christianity, immigration and indeed the insatiable curiosity of Swedes themselves have all played a part in shaping the ever-evolving Swedish traditions. You might both recognise traces of your own traditions and be baffled by the extraordinary nature of others.
