Sustainable Development Week
The Nature School of Nynäshamn is a unit within the schools and pre-schools area in the Eco-municipality of Nynäshamn. Formally, the Nature School falls under the public administration of child-care and education. The Nature School is also responsible for Agenda 21 activities within this part of the public administration. For several years, the Nature school has organised environmental weeks at schools in the Nynäshamn area. During spring 2003 the idea was born to develop and enlarge this project. Environmental issues would be supplemented with the public health, social aspects and economical points of view. The target group would also be expanded to include all residents of the local area. The purpose of the theme week, 27/10 -2/11 2004, was to bring public attention to an important topic and encourage discussions on how we, the residents of the Eco-municipality of Nynäshamn, can achieve sustainable development on both a local and global level.
