Who will drive the climate transition?

Why is Sweden’s climate transition moving so slowly, even though the technology is known and the costs are low? What does the latest research tell us about technology, business and mobility? How can communication, cocreation and collaboration between organisations and stakeholders contribute to increasing the speed of the transition? See the sessions from Almedalen here.
