On Monday, September 20, 2021, SEE Sustainability Week starts with a total of 74 activities on 179 occasions. During Friday's lunch, Arcum associated Louise Eriksson, an associate professor in psychology and a researcher in environmental psychology at the Department of Geography at Umeå University, will talk about her research that focuses on the individual level in Arctic research, more specifically environmental psychological perspectives on sustainability in an Arctic context.

It will be Arcum's contribution to SEE Sustainability Week, an event that has been arranged in September since 2009. The first two years focused on sustainable development in Umeå and then expanded to the Umeå region, thereafter to the whole of Västerbotten and Norrbotten. The management group for Västerbotten County consists of the County Administrative Board of Västerbotten, Västerbotten Region, Umeå University, Umeå Municipality, Skellefteå Municipality and Nolia AB.

In addition to Arcum's activity, soap felting will be offered in Bygdeå, Sustainable Fashion in Vännäs and a book exhibition in Lycksele -to meantion a few. See the whole program via the website and choose something you want to participate in - there are both digital and physical meeting places.

In addition to a presentation of the activities, the magazine contains many interesting articles, including how Governor Helena Hellmark Knutsson views the benefits of northern Sweden, Västerbotten's public health work and how civic influence can help us meet climate goals.
