Swedish Parliamentarians pay a visit to SSE Riga just weeks before the School’s 25th Anniversary
On October 10, the Speaker of the Swedish Parliament, H.E. Andreas Norlén, and a group of Swedish Parliamentarians visited SSE Riga during their three-day visit to Latvia.
Following an introduction to the School and its overall activities by SSE Riga Rector Anders Paalzow, Senior Vice President Anders Alexanderson presented the activities of the Anne-Marie and Gustaf Ander Centre for Media Studies and the Centre’s plans for a Sustainable Society. The Parliamentarians showed a particular interest in the Centre for a Sustainable Society.
The group also met with SSE Riga students Hleb Birylau, Rodijs Ronis and Lada Samarska for a discussion on regional economic and political developments and how students see the future. All three had a positive view of the future and praised the high quality of education at SSE Riga ‒ something that the parliamentarians appreciated. The students also asked questions about Swedish politics.
The Speaker of the Parliament presented an artwork to the School for its 25th Anniversary ‒ a gift from the Swedish Parliament.
