Speaking at a meeting with Hela Sverige Skall Leva, the Swedish folk movement that hosts Transition in Sweden, she said:
(Our translation from Swedish) “It was so great to get back to Stockholm after the UN climate negotiations to discover all these Transition initiatives. This is exactly what I hoped would start in Sweden, as transition must begin locally.
We will cooperate to connect the local and global”
Visibly pleased, she continued:
” That is why I am so happy to be attending the Rural Parliament in September, to present the Swedish Government’s work with our plan to take us to 2050. “
She especially expressed her support for the work of Transition intitatives in the County of Östergötland who are now cooperating with the County Board.
“That’s a good initiative that I hope spreads further”.
