This Sunday, July 3, the political summit in Almedalen starts and runs until July 10. Personally and professionally I find the week in Almedalen (in Visby at the Island Gotland) extremely valuable. It gives almost unlimited opportunities to meet colleagues from both within and outside your sector, to visit high-quality seminars, participate in discussions, and to be honest also to enjoy life.
Review my reflections from the Almedalen week 2009 and 2010 via the following links in order to get a better understanding of the open and pretty informal types of meetings and discussions taking place in Almedalen:
As you see, a broad range of different topics are discussed, and I will come back during this week with some examples of interesting seminars I recommend you to visit. If you do not have the opportunity to be in Visby next week, then I suggest you follow my blog where I will give you my reflections from seminars and meetings.
