Long-term prospects for a Swedish Green Economy

Jun 05

shiftN has been invited as a process facilitator in a futures project initiated by the Commission on the Future of Sweden. The Framtidskommissionen was established by the Swedish Government in 2012 and is chaired by Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt. The aim of the Commission is to identify future societal challenges the country may face, which in turn will give a foundation for the Swedish Government to prepare long-term strategies and policies. This particular project wants to discuss and develop scenarios for how Sweden can move towards a green economy in the next decades. The project is led by the Swedish Environmental Institute in cooperation with the Swedish Defense Research Agency and with participation of the Swedish Agency for Growth Policy Analysis. A first workshop was held on June 4th, involving a diverse mix of experts and thinkers on global and Swedish affairs. The project is scheduled to run into the fall and will be capped by the publication of a concluding memorandum.
