We are visiting all countries again, and today it is Sweden’s turn to entertain.
1 | Population
Sweden’s population has nearly doubled in the past 100 years. 11 million babies have been born, and 1.6 million more people have immigrated than emigrated.
2 | Växjö
In 1996, Växjö became the first city in the world to set the goal of becoming fossil-fuel free by 2030. Since then, the city has backed up words with actions and is often referred to as ‘Europe’s greenest city’. In 2014, Växjö had 2.4m tonnes of CO2 emissions per capita – significantly less than the EU average of 7.3 that year.
3 | Sala silvergruva
Sweden is home to the world’s deepest hotel room, the Mine Suite of Sala Silver Mine. The suite is more than 150 metres underground.
4 | Gassy Stockholm
Every month 999,000 kg of food waste is gathered by the City of Stockholm. The waste is turned into 115,000 m3 of gas, which buses and taxis use as fuel.
5 | Moose
Every year, about 250,000 people hunt for moose in Sweden. Even though 100,000 moose are shot annually, more than 300,000 moose roam the Swedish forests.
