Stockholm University

About

Stockholm University is one of the 200 highest-ranked universities in the world and one of the top 50 universities in Europe. It is home to over 30,000 students. Since Svante Arrhenius’ pioneering work on the role of carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas in Earth’s atmosphere, Stockholm has been a focal point for advancing our understanding and public awareness about climate change. Stockholm was in many ways the birthplace of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) which was first chaired and co-founded by Bert Bolin, Professor of Meteorology at Stockholm University. The city was also the starting point of the youth movements which made the public aware of the climate crisis that is all around us.
