The event took place at the Swedish-owned design firm Trollbäck + Company in SoHo, and the panellists included Sweden's Minister for International Development Cooperation and Climate Isabella Lövin and Minister for Education Gustav Fridolin, and representatives of various UN bodies and non-profit organisations.
