ARNA and the Ung SciShop project

ARNA, Art and Nature, is a non-profit association that works through the cultural dimension of sustainability. The goal of our projects is to be pathfinders in societal development and to contribute with creative innovation in support of a sustainable future.

We anchor our projects to Storkriket in Skåne and since 2013 have been involved in the biosphere process that Storkriket becomes Sweden's eighth Unesco biosphere reserve. Our vision for the biosphere area is for it to be the first in the world to profile itself through the cultural dimension of sustainability. A step on the way is that the biosphere candidacy has chosen the cultural dimension as one of its process supports.

Children and young people are an obvious target group in the work for a sustainable future, and therefore ARNA took the initiative for the Ung SciShop project. Read more about ARNA at
