Presenter: Magnus Fredricson, Strategist for Sustainable Development with the Skaraborg Association of Municipalities, Sweden

Sustainability the Swedish way: Transition and development — with a special emphasis on climate and energy

Magnus Fredricson will discuss how Sweden goes about sustainable development on a local, regional and national level. He will then zoom in on West Sweden and its ambitious work to become climate neutral by 2030. The challenges and opportunities associated with being the main industrial region of Sweden will be addressed. Special emphasis will be on renewable fuels and energy efficiency, but other areas such as transportation, food production, consumption and housing will be included.

Sweden and Minnesota are similar in many ways, and this will probably form the basis of a concluding conversation.

All Southcentral Minnesota Clean Energy Council events are free and open to the public.
