So asks this article about the Swedish music scene.  But the same question applies to the Swedish environmental scene, for a country that has proven to be a leader on the issue of climate change, especially in the context of food.

On October 23, 2009, the New York Times ran an article entitled To Cut Global Warming, Swedes Study Their Plates.” This Swedish movement is driven by two major events: (1) the creation of new national dietary guidelines that give equal weight to health and the environment, and (2) the major organic labels in Sweden embarking on a new initiative called “Klimatmärkingning för Mat,” or “Climate Labelling for Food” in English.

For a few weeks next spring I plan to be a Guest Researcher at Uppsala University Faculty of Law in Sweden to lay the groundwork for a comparative project one environmental labeling for food in the United States and Sweden.
