Feel free to contact me with ideas on how MedH can become a more sustainable department and workplace, or if you have questions concerning the environment and sustainability at MedH and Karolinska Institutet. 

I attend work environment meetings at Neo once a month, and meetings with all environmental coordinators at KI once per semester. I co-operate with the other environmental representative in Neo (in the future also in ANA Futura) and I occasionally call a MedH environmental meeting or brainstorming session where everyone at the department who are interested in the environment are welcome to ask questions and come with suggestions.

An inclusive work place - Seminar with Friends

In the spring of 2022, the MedH Organizational and social work environment group, arranged a seminar together with Maria Loodberg, expert advisor from the organization Friends. The theme for the seminar was how to create an inclusive workplace. Maria talked about what Friends do and why their work is important. Other points of the seminar were:

  • The meaning of degrading treatment, harassment, discrimination and so on.
  • Norms in the workplace.
  • Suppression teqhniques, strategies and validation techniques.

The recording of the seminar is now available on KI Play and in video format on this page.
