“Sverige i världen” (Sweden in the world) has for many years been the go-to place for discussions and debates on topics ranging from global development to climate change at the annual Almedalen Week, a yearly event hosted in Visby, Gotland, in the beginning of summer. Almedalen Week covers speeches, presentations, panel debates, and seminars, and is widely considered to be the most important forum for Swedish politics.

Sverige i världen has been hosted in conjunction with The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) together with a wide range of partners.

2024 Sverige i världen will not be arranged at Almedalen, due to Sidas limited budget and new steering directives. If conditions change in the future, the agency may arrange the arena again another year.

We welcome Almedalen-visitors interested in global development to search for these topics in the Almedalen official program. We also encourage you to take part of seminars from previous years, all recorded and available on Sverige i världens YouTube-channel.
