Sweden, the United Kingdom and the European Union have a lot to learn from, and to be inspired by, each other.

The great challenge of our lifetime, and how we can solve it together.

The rise of green consumerism = the fall of traditional consumption behaviour?

Overconsumption - or the “throwaway society” - is slowly being challenged by green consumerism, with individuals wanting to decrease their ecological footprint. There is mounting pressure on large corporations to take responsibility and to take action. How is this green consumerism changing consumption, and that is the role of business?

A whole new world emerging – urban planning in the wake of climate change

Cities worldwide are powerful agents of change, however, fewer than half of European cities have climate adaption plans in place. How can cities develop through urban planning but remain environmentally aware and active? Is it better and more sustainable to build cities from the ground up, or to retrofit existing infrastructure? How will climate change in combination with remote working affect the future of urban planning?

The grid – where is all the energy coming from?

Electrification has been called “the greatest engineering achievement of the 20th Century”, and it’s now labelled a potential enabler in the fight against climate change. The shift to renewable energy sources comes with challengers however, prices of renewable electricity and electric equipment continue to drop, but how will the grid manage growing demand as more and more society depends on it? What is needed from governments, energy providers and businesses?
