  1. Sweden . Olivia;$<3.

  2. P R I M E. Place, Region, Interaction, Movement, Environment.

  3. ~ . • 38 longitude 64 latitude . • The Relative Location of Sweden is East of Norway, and West of Finland . • As well, it is North of Germany and Poland. • As you can see, all the regions of Sweden are different colours.

  4. Immigration\Movement trends. • As of 2010, 1.33 million people or 14.3% of the inhabitants in Sweden were foreign-born. • Sweden has been transformed from a nation of emigration to a nation of immigration from World War II onwards. • In 2009, immigration reached its highest level since records began with 102,280 people migrating to Sweden while the total population grew by 84335.

  5. Environmental Affects . • Sweden is a relatively cold country. • Here depicted in Fahrenheit are Sweden’s average high, low, highest and lowest temperatures.

  6. How do the physical surroundings and conditions affect peoples lives? “ ‘There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing’, (in Swedish the proverb rhymes). This is a proverb that I have heard since I was a child, and opinions which we grow up with become in some way the truth.” Says a Swedish blogger. From the looks of it, it seems the ‘Sweeds ‘take their harsh conditions rather well.

  7. ~` Sweden is a relatively cold country. Sweden's people naturally adapt to the harsh icy weather. Warm clothing, snow tires, fireplaces, shovels, snow plows, be icing salt even hot chocolate are all thing that Sweden's people half to contribute into their lives because of their weather conditions.

  8. Trading. The Swedish trade council was formed in 1972 which surprisingly wasn’t too long ago. There’s 60 bases around the world, and their in charge of basically Sweden's trading with the world. Of course over the years, ways of trading have changed and technology has played a big part in it. They can trade over sea, in an airplane, by foot or on land. It mainly depends on the country they’re trading with. But, think about it. Back in the days without trains, cars, boats that could carry a mass of objects and planes, trading must have been extremely difficult and they could only trade with close regions and\or countries. Technology has affected trading in a HUGE way. Now, they can trade with countries farther away, and ship more goods at a time, which overall increases Sweden’s economic well being.

  9. ~ • These methods of trading affect the rest of the world in a big way, the pollution is a huge problem for Sweden. Shipping good to other countries is costly not just financially but environmentally as well. • Shipping boats, cars and planes produce green house gasses and carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide emissions from shipping is currently estimated at 4 to 5 percent of the global total. • The most common and devastating pollution caused by shipping boats are oil spills.

  10. Natural Resources.

  11. Natural resources . • Copper, • Lead, • Zinc, • Gold, • Silver, • Tungsten, • Uranium, • Arsenic, • Iron ore, • Feldspar, • Timber, • Hydro power. • Sweden is an export based country; it relies on exporting to other countries to make money. • Their biggest exports are; Timber, Hydropower and Mining. • If Sweden didn’t export these things they would face a massive economic downfall.

  12. Sustainability of Sweden’s natural resources. • As I said, Sweden’s most important natural resources are timber, hydro power and mining. But, how long will they be able to continue mining? Harvesting wood and hydro power?

  13. Extension

  14. What’s next for Sweden?(research question) . Sweden is doing well. Economy wise their stable, as well as their natural resources. In about 10 years, I predict Sweden will be doing the same, or maybe even better! All though, if they don’t watch their pollution rate they’re wild life could drastically drop cause tourist rates to do the same. To ensure future success they need to start thinking about a “greener” way to export and import goods, because as I said Sweden relies on exporting goods to make money. Also, because lumber is one the their biggest export they need good and healthy land to plant and harvest trees from, which is another good reason to start thinking of greener ways to handle their goods.
