Student camp raised environmental awareness

This summer IVL and the Swedish Institute, SI, arranged a two-week scholarship camp in Sweden. 20 students from India and China got the opportunity to learn about sustainable development and experience smart city aspects of the Swedish capital Stockholm and the region Dalarna.

“By bringing these young people together and by sharing our experiences and knowledge with them, we wanted to empower them to accelerate the path towards sustainable future”, says Aditi Bhasin, project leader at IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute. Built upon the values of smart learning, eco city and connected society, the camp provides a prestigious opportunity for the students to experience Sweden’s state-of-the-art environmental practices. Smart Cities and Waste Water Treatment The camp combined presentations and workshops on environmental technology and management with visits to smart city areas in Stockholm, such as Hammarby Sjöstad and Norra Djurgårdsstaden, the Stockholm Royal Seaport. “This camp has opened the world of sustainable living for me by showing how those theoretical concepts can be implemented in the society”, says Sun Yuxian, a participant from the city of Tianjin, China.
