Design is key to reaching the Sustainable Development Goals in less than ten years. Sweden is setting the goals high, and aims to be a leader in implementing the UN 2030 Agenda – nationally and globally. Many Swedish designers, architects and design companies are frontrunners when it comes to finding sustainable solutions, and changing the way through design. This is the starting point for a renewed government initiative to strengthen Sweden’ international position as a design nation and the export of sustainable goods and services in the coming years. Learn more about the ideas behind Swedish Design Movement, why design is the bridge between solution and change, and why international collaboration is key to our global challenges.
