Environment and Justice Program

Sweden is an exciting and progressive place to study environmental issues and policies. The concept of sustainability was embraced by government and society very early on, and today Sweden’s prominence in the European Union (EU) as a leader in sustainability is evident in many ways. If you’re interested in studying in a beautiful and sustainable place in Europe, then we have just the opportunity for you!
