‘In Sweden we are adopting a sustainable view towards the environment, we are building windmills and recycling. Also, we are trying to spread the information across people, including Lithuanian society. This exposition is an extraordinary, not traditional means to talk about climate change problems’, said Swedish Ambassador in Lithuania Cecilia Ruthström-Ruin.
The caricatures by Swedish artists have been created after Copenhagen conference on climate change in 2009 and is a part of the Swedish Institute initiative ‘Encounter with the Future: Swedish Way Toward the Sustainability’. The initiative aims to develop the sustainable society raising human awareness while encountering damage to the environment.
Meeting With Business Representatives
Swedish Embassy has been collaborating with Kaunas University of Technology (KTU) for several years, as KTU students can learn Swedish language, choosing it as an additional module to their curriculum. Although many companies face the problem of lack of employees who speak Swedish, the students are not motivated enough to learn this language.
The first meeting between students and enterprises will give the opportunity to students to find out why it is important to learn Swedish. The representatives of the company will talk about their business, about Swedish business culture and ethics. Students already studying Swedish and those interested in it are invited.
