On September 3, Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Victoria will be on the campus of the Blekinge Institute of Technology to attend lectures in the Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability programme.

The Crown Princess has a deep personal interest in sustainable development and inclusive social sustainability. She has therefore expressed the wish to take part in the programme’s introductory activities for new students on September 3.

Over the course of the day, three lectures will be given by Professor Karl-Henrik Robèrt. He will speak of the importance of a structured approach to reach sustainability and of the challenges present on the journey. Robèrt is the founder of The Natural Step foundation and is the recipient of the Blue Planet Prize.

Members of the press wishing to take part of the morning’s welcome and lecture should register with Jenny Gustavsson, webbredaktor@bth.seor at 044-38 50 27.

The Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability programme is a new master’s programme with no equivalent in the world that will start in September. The programme is directed at the international market and has received applications from many highly qualified individuals from around the world. Students will develop their leadership abilities to inform and inspire others through a structured view of sustainability and a solid knowledge of the subject matter. Dr. Karl-Henrik Robèrt and Dr. Göran Broman, professors in the Faculty of Engineering at BTH, are the founders of the programme and will be playing a key role as instructors.
