The Embassy of Sweden
Sweden + Kenya
Editorial
What happens when the Arctic
circle meets the vibrant Equator?
Great friendship is formed! For
50 years, Sweden and Kenya have
had a flourishing relationship.

Kenya gained independence in 1963,
and ever since the two countries have
cooperated in areas such as politics,
arts and business. Sweden + Kenya
was created to commemorate this
anniversary and we were invited to
create its design. It contains stories,
moments and memories from the
50 year old history of this exchange,
with hopes of another 50 years of
thriving relations. The book was
released at an event at The Embassy
of Sweden in Nairobi in June 2014.
"Urbanization is breaking old habits
and changing views on gender issues."
Bo Göransson, Former Ambassador to Kenya
