Glokala Sverige is a collaborative project funded by Sweden’s government agency for development cooperation (Sida). Together, the United Nations Association in Sweden, Swedish Association for Local Authorities and Regions, and International Centre for Local Democracy cooperate in enhancing knowledge as well as commitment in Swedish municipalities and regions for Agenda 2030 and the Global Goals. Presently, 181 out of 310 Swedish municipalities have chosen to participate.
Agenda 2030 Awareness Raising
Glokala Sverige emphasizes the holistic character of the Agenda 2030 and the Global Goals. They aim at inspiring their target groups to consider working with all Global Goals in a systematic way. Glokala Sverige’s strategy is to support Swedish municipalities and regions in implementing Agenda 2030. Therefore, they carry out a customized training for each municipality and region in the project – on location when possible, otherwise digitally. Regional meetings are held with municipalities in the area in question, for exchange and sharing of knowledge, ideas and experience. The conference Mötesplats Agenda 2030 is launched each autumn, for participants of the project as well as authorities, researchers and partners. Educational and inspirational material such as films, workshop toolkits and e-learnings are accessible on their website.
