”Vi behöver en gemensam nordisk krisberedskap”

Green parties in Sweden, Norway & Finland call for a risk and ability assessment to collaboratively confront our shared climate change challenges. "We, leaders of three Nordic Green Parties, believe that in a situation where climate change is expected to give our countries a much warmer climate that makes our extensive pine forests more vulnerable to fires of the kind now raging, the Nordic countries need to develop their common ability to create and maintain a robust and sustainable society, even in extreme weather conditions... Green parties in government will work for fossil freedom as quickly as possible. The climate cannot wait."

Dear friends,

I´m so happy to be here, among friends, in the global family of Greens.

However I have to tell you that all the Swedish Greens today are in mourning. Yesterday we received the horrible news that Zaida Catalan, former spokesperson of young Swedish Greens, lost her life in Congo Kinshasa where she worked for the UN, investigating human rights abuses and war crimes.

Swedish Green Party congress elected new spokespersons

Every second year, the Swedish Green Party holds themed congresses, and the main theme of the congress this time was global sustainable development, with a resolution being passed on the issue. A resolution on urban development was also adopted.

Sweden's fossil free development pathway

Countries in the world need new pathways for development, away from fossil carbon into renewable and fossil free future.

Sweden of today is built on revenues from the steel and paper industry, but our development has not finished. Climate change is now questioning the old development pathways.

Sweden is in a good position, we have nearly managed to phase out fossil energy in the sectors of heating and electricity. Our carbon emission accounted for in the Kyoto protocol shows 5,5 ton per capita, less than China of today. A carbon tax has been instrumental to make this happen.
