Renewal of Sweden's National Day celebrations

In collaboration with the Swedish National Day Foundation, RISE has a mission to carry out renewal and development work for the Swedish National Day celebrations. The goal of the project is to look ahead and explore how the National Day can be celebrated in 5-10 years' time.

A core element of the development work is to integrate both the official celebration at Skansen and the broader celebration around Sweden and abroad. The project focuses on the need to have a comprehensive planning of the celebration where local and national activities are integrated. This includes, among other things, a review of county committees, their composition and working methods, and how the national day can be developed with common elements throughout the country.

From a resident-centred perspective, RISE plans to explore different ways the National Day can be celebrated, by learning from successful practices and from other types of celebrations in Sweden and in other countries. The project will contribute to the basis for a renewal work and present its results and proposals in a report to the foundation. The result will give the Swedish National Day Foundation insight and guidance on how the celebration can be shaped to engage and include more people, while at the same time focusing on Sweden's rich history and traditions.
