Smart Societies – Creative & Inclusive

27 Aug 2019

Creative urban spaces are vital for growth, innovation, and inclusion. Culture and creativity contribute to the welfare and well-being of any country. Sustainability, gender equality, entrepreneurship, innovation and social cohesion are vital components in how we build our societies. Sweden is an innovative, globally competitive country and Swedes are considered early adopters of new ideas and technology.
