Stockholm Launches Study Visits Programme

Current European Green Capital, Stockholm, has launched a professional and sustainable study visits programme to focus on environmental matters.

As part of its effort to generate local and international awareness about environmental issues, the City of Stockholm has launched a new Professional Study Visits Programme. The aim of the programme is also to strengthen Stockholm’s networks with other European cities, organisations and research centres.

A variety of themes
The programme allows visitors the opportunity to explore the solutions created by Stockholm in relation to a variety of themes. It is designed to answer questions about the environmental work undertaken in all departments, companies and districts of the City of Stockholm.

Apart from a general introductory seminar, the themes in the programme include water and waste management, urban development and renewal, combating climate change and ensuring an effective and sustainable transport system.

The professional study visits programme also covers areas such as education, social inclusion, sustainable energy production and culture and creativity for sustainable development.

Calendar and questions
Detailed information on events to be held in Stockholm which relate to the European Green Capital title can be found via the City of Stockholm’s 2010 European Green Capital calendar, available on the City’s website.
