Film from American Ambassador Mark Brzezinski's visit to Abisko Scientific Research Station

Earlier this month, the U.S. Ambassador to Sweden Mark Brzezinski visited Abisko in the northernmost part of Sweden to view, first-hand, the impact that climate change has on a sub-Arctic environment. Station Manager Christer Jonasson gave a lecture and a tour of the station and near research sites. The Ambassador also got time to sit down for questions and discussions with researchers on site giving their views and sharing experiences

The Swedish American Green Alliance (SAGA) partnership was launched in February 2010 between the U.S. Embassy in Sweden and the Government of Sweden.

The visit is summarized in a video produced by the SAGA project.
