Thinking Ahead with SEI and KTH

KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) have strengthened their ties through a cooperation agreement for environment and development research. The extended partnership reinforces collaboration between the partners in strategic areas, such as international energy and water issues, climate research, policy analysis, and international governance. The partners also aim to share research insights with business leaders, policy-makers and scientists in Sweden and around the world.

As part of the renewed partnership, KTH and SEI are organizing an interactive seminar series which offers participants an area to discuss themes such as future scenarios and sustainable consumption, and the possibility to find future collaborations. "Building Sustainable Futures with Urban Planning and Local Governance" is the fourth seminar in the series.

Welcome!
