About the course:

Sweden is often portrayed as a world leader within the sustainability field, but does Sweden live up to that image? Which Swedish examples can serve as inspiration and a model for sustainability on a global level?

This course is designed to concretely examine this image of Sweden by taking a closer, critical look at how Sweden has worked with sustainable development historically and how well current initiatives can serve as a model for sustainability on a global level. Through interaction with various academics and professionals, this course allows you to examine various sustainable development successes and failures in Sweden from different perspectives. The various case studies and examples from Sweden problematise the environmental, economic, and social aspects of sustainable development. As such, this course challenges you to grapple with the highly contested concept of 'sustainable development', and apply it to the Swedish context.
