August 21-27, 2017: Stockholm Act Festival held in Sweden
The Stockholm Act brings together people from art, science, politics, and business for a week-long festival that explores steps that can be taken to build a sustainable world. The festival examines perspectives on what global and local sustainability mean in our daily lives, and is linked to Sweden’s engagement in the global Sustainable Development Goals. Among the events held during the week, the Swedish Institute of International Affairs (UI) programme on Global Politics and Security hosts a seminar addressing new threats to global health on August 26, 2017, including both pandemics and antibiotic resistance as serious threats to global health and global security.
