5 Years of Engaging India @ Almedalen

Climate action is not an individualistic pursuit, but demands a collaborative approach from countries globally to combine their strengths and knowledge for meaningful action. Recognizing this need for collaboration across borders, Engaging India at Almedalen, celebrating it's 5th year, brings together Swedish and Indian industries to build connections and co-create solutions for mutual pathways and innovative solutions to tackling climate challenges. Accordingly, the theme for Engaging India at Almedalen this year is Samband for the Climate. Borrowing from the Hindi word 'Sambandh' and Swedish word 'Samband' meaning connections, it aims to take forward past conversations to create a more collaborative, sustainable future.

Stay tuned for more updates on the seminar.
