Curators of Sweden

Every week, a new person is @sweden. For seven days, she or he tweets about life in Sweden, love or work, sharing opinions and ideas along the way. Then, someone else does the same – but differently. Follow our country through our curators. Welcome to Sweden.

Know someone who might be interested? Nominate a future curator of Sweden.
