One of the two managing directors of Partner und Partner, Jörg Finkbeiner, is currently traveling as a special guest on the Federal President's state visit to Sweden. It is striking how seriously people in Sweden take the issues of climate protection, future technologies and timber construction. At lunch yesterday in Stockholm City Hall, Crown Princess Victoria was very interested in a conversation with Jörg Finkbeiner. Yesterday afternoon Finkbeiner visited Sweden's King Carl XVI together with the Federal President. Gustaf and the Swedish Minister of Culture the current exhibition at the architecture and design center ArkDes, which focuses primarily on wooden construction. From there, the tour group virtually followed the inauguration of the “Sara Cultural Center” in Skellefteå, the tallest wooden building in Europe. Finally, Jörg Finkbeiner was able to give a speech to discuss how sustainable and socially just construction can work in the future. Finally, Finkbeiner travels today to the northernmost city in Sweden, Kiruna. ©Federal Government / Photographer Guido Bergmann
