Transition in Sweden supported by Environmental Minister

The spread of Transition Towns in Sweden got a big push forward recently from the Swedish Minister for the Environment, Lena Ek.

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”.
