Royal Djurgården – a place for important conversations

Such a huge range of important conversations have taken place at Royal Djurgården over the ages, varying from discussions surrounding major issues to forging cunning plans. For example, did Karl XI invite the powerful men of the time to Djurgården for hunting and parties? What history-altering conversations took place during Karl XIV Johan’s summer stays at Rosendal Palace? During that time, these conversations were private, but imagine how exciting it would have been to be a fly on the wall!

Now and in the future, we want Royal Djurgården to be a place where important conversations take place and make a difference. For our attractions, it is a prerequisite that these conversations should involve and be heard by many; this way we can take the steps towards a sustainable society together. Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do, and to ensure that we do things right, we link our joint sustainability work to the Sustainable Development Goals as part of the 2030 Agenda.

A powerful voice

Therefore, we couldn’t be prouder and happier that the Maritime Museum has become the first institution in Sweden to partner with the UN’s ‘Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development’ initiative. This will give the museum a great platform to make its voice heard. Since 1st March, the museum has been broadcasting its new online series called ‘Studio Sjöhistoriska’, which focuses on marine sustainability and features live expert talks. The Maritime Museum is thus an important platform for increasing awareness about sustainability and the marine environment.
Can it get any better than a partnership with the UN when it comes to holding these important conversations that affect so many of us? We don’t think so!

Did you know…?
At the Maritime Museum, you’ll find over 27,000 drawings of boats and ships! So, if you’re thinking of building your own boat, you have a gold mine of inspiration here.
