The County Administrative Board of Västra Götaland at their press release about Victoria's visit to Sotenäs today.

The Crown Princess visits the municipality of Sotenäs
HRH Crown Princess Victoria visits tomorrow, March 7, Sotenäs Municipality. There are, among other things, algae, plastic and cargo on the program.
The sea will of course be a blue thread during the Crown Princess's visit to Sotenäs. The program includes visits to Sotenäs Symbioscentrum and Aqua Symbios. The Crown Princess will also speak with Fisher Association Norden and the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management. In the latter case, it is about clearancing wrecks.
Deputy County Governor Lisbeth Schultze is the host of the visit.

Today, the Crown Princess visited Sotenäs. The Crown Princess visited Sotenäs Symbioscentrum, Aqua Symbios, Fisher Association Norden and the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management. During the visit to Fisher Association Norden, the Crown Princess got to sew a shrimp trawl. On board the Fatboy ship, the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management told about wreck clearance.

Lots of good photos without watermark at this article of Victoria visiting Smögen in Sotenäs.
For lunch, the crown princess got cod back at a restaurant in Kungshamn and then she visited Fisher Association Nordn where she learned more about their work to improve the environment in the sea.
- It was a great visit. She is incredibly engaged, well-read and interested, says Sixten Söderberg, who is chairman of the association and also was Victorian's table neighbor during lunch.
He hopes that the Crown Princess's commitment can lead to that the situation of the seas is taken more seriously.
- It looks bad when we know what's going on in the ocean and how much it's being wasted. We need to work and take care, says Sixten Söderberg.
And it seemed that the Crown Princess was willing to pass on that message. When she greeted students from Smögen's school shortly thereafter, she said how sad it is with all the plastic that ends up in the sea. But she also praised the work that takes place in Sotenäs.
- More should come here and listen to what you can.
In addition to school students, other curious Sotenäs children had gathered to get a glimpse of the Crown Princess.
- It's a sensation that our crown princess is here, that means a lot, says Rut-Marie Andersson.
- It's fun that the municipality of Sotenäs will be noticed even outside the tourist season, Ing-Marie Artursson says.
Another who was pleased with the meeting was the Deputy Mayor Mats Abrahamsson.
- I'm amazed at how nice, easy and open she is to everyone. It's gratifying to see, he says, and tells us that the Crown Princess was very curious.
- She has asked questions about everything from dredges to plastic in the ocean. She seems genuinely interested in the sea and environment.
Even the Crown Princess herself seemed pleased with the visit to Sotenäs and she even took some pictures on the dock before she went home.
- It has been very exciting, she concluded.

- The visit connects to Crown Princess's commitment to highlight the importance of sustainable fisheries, water and sea issues, said information officer Ulrika Näsholm, who took part in the visit.

Royal meeting on wreck construction
HRH Crown Princess Victoria was on March 7 in Sotenäs municipality. In the morning, she visited Sotenäs Symbios Center and Aqua Symbios and after lunch Fisher Association Norden in Smögen. There, President Sixten Söderberg told about how they work to secure fish stocks and to get a cleaner sea.
The final point of the Crown Princess's program was Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management, and it was about the remediation of environmentally hazardous wrecks in Swedish waters. Frida Åberg, investigator at the Marine Environment Administration Unit, and former colleague Christer Larsson, told about the wrecking of the wreck Thetis.
Following a brief presentation within the Fisher Association's premises, they continued with the vessel "Fatboy".
- It was a very successful day. First, we showed films from the remediation of Thetis. Then we went by boat to Hållö, outside Smögen, where the underwater robot (ROV) was released into the sea. The Crown Princess tried to control the ROV and, among other things, saw life on the seabed, says Frida Åberg.
- It was unclear at last if the strict winter cold would prevent us from bringing the Crown Princess to the sea. But the weather has slammed over the past few days and it became a fantastic winter day at sea. The Crown Princess was very well-informed and interested in issues related to environmentally hazardous wrecks, she had many questions to us.

"On Wednesday, our environmental manager Lars received the honor of meeting Crown Princess Victoria and telling about our marine products, our work with MSC and vulnerability, and about the project to exploit fishes that become over in our production to biogas, which then becomes for renewable energy to us. Why was the crown princess involved in this, may you think? She is one of 16 ambassadors whose task is to promote the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, Agenda 2030, in various ways. In the role of ambassador, the Crown Princess will follow especially the goals of water and health. Exciting we think!"

Victoria met today Wallenberg Academy Fellows Jessica Körning Ljungberg, Anna Dreber Almenberg and Lisa Hultman at the Royal Palace. They are researchers supported by Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. Since the program started in 2012, 174 young researchers have become Wallenberg Academy Fellows.

Umeå University told about the meeting at their website:
Today Tuesday is Jessica Körning Ljungberg, Associate Professor of Psychology at Umeå University, one of three researchers visiting Crown Princess Victoria at Royal Palace.
Jessica Körning Ljungberg conducts a research study on whether a mentally active life, for example speaking multiple languages, or vocational choice positively affects older people's memory. She thinks that one reason why she was chosen as one of three researchers may be that the subject interests the Crown Princess.
- Her family is multi-lingual, and she is interested in training, so I can imagine it may be the case.
The three researchers will present their research for thirty minutes each, and then talk to the Crown Princess about the conditions for female researchers today. They have been encouraged to have an open dialogue with the Crown Princess about the personal experience of being a female researcher in a career.
- I feel honored to be chosen, and very happy to meet the Crown Princess. I want to speak about that "Against this background, how should we think about the elderly care?". We believe that what's important for a better aging is to keep on going and activate the brain; meet people, dare to learn new things - to live a rich life. Such a meeting can open doors for the future. There is a chance to influence.
The meeting with the Crown Princess takes place at today at. 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Contributing researchers are, apart from Jessica Körning Ljungberg, Anna Dreber Almenberg from Stockholm School of Economics and Lisa Hultman from Uppsala University.

At court Instagram:
The Crown Princess visited today the Amphibious Regiment (Amf 1) at Berga and attended the amphibian battalion's exercise Torleif.

Great photos and a video of Victoria shooting at Instagram of the Amphibious Regiment:
We occasionally report when we visit the royal family or shoot the salute - today the roles have been changed!
Today, Crown Princess Victoria got to remove dust from her shooting skills and also made a sharp hand grenade throw. The Crown Princess also visited the basic training troop which is currently having exercise Torleif in the area around Vaxholm.

At Facebook of the Amphibious Regiment:

And after a day in the military Victoria attends in the evening at "Discussions on water" in connection with World Water Day in Teater Pero.
The guests give different perspectives on how clean water is a prerequisite for combating poverty, strengthening women's rights and giving children the opportunity to go to school. Parts of the evening's conversation will be in English.
The event is arranged by WaterAid Sweden, Victoria is the patron of it. One of the speakers is Jan Eliasson, the former deputy secretary-general of UN, he is the global ambassador of WaterAid Sweden.

Crown Princess Victoria attends a WaterAid event in Stockholm _ Daily Mail Online

On Thursday, World Water Day was celebrated throughout the world - among other things, to highlight the importance of clean water for human life.
Crown Princess Victoria celebrated the day in the company of, among others, top diplomat Jan Eliasson and Wateraid Ethiopian country manager Bethlehem Mengistu.
And actor Sofia Helin, perhaps best known for her role as Saga Norén in "Bron". A less unknown role she has is the ambassador of the non-profit organization Wateraid, in which she participated in a panel discussion on Thursday.
- Water is something we take in Sweden for granted. We do not think how dependent we are on water, and what asset we have for water, she says after the panel call.
Sofia Helin tells how important it was for her to use her celebrity for something important.
- You can talk about peace and everything possible, but people do not have a toilet or water - you will not be very peaceful. You get pissed off! And sick.
Sofia Helin is ambassador to Wateraid, and the evening of honor was also the patron of the organization - Crown Princess Victoria - in place.
- I think I've played for her sometime earlier, but otherwise it was the first time we met. It was very nice. The Crown Princess is very committed to these questions and incredibly knowledgeable, says Sofia Helin, who, after the panel interview, had a private meeting with amongst others the Crown Princess.
- I am very grateful that we have a royal family in Sweden which is engaged in this important issue.

"Today, we welcome Crown Princess Victoria to Malmö Latinskola. The Crown Princess is here to learn more about how we work with the UN's global goals and sustainable development. The Crown Princess meets students Fanny Svensson and Anna Jörgensen who, together with their teachers Elin Dahmberg and Sara Böök, have worked to spread knowledge and inspiration about the Global goals in a project in collaboration with Malmö city."

From Twitter of the City of Malmö
"Today, H.R.H Crown Princess Victoria has visited Malmö and listened to our work on sustainability #globalamalen # agenda2030. A cold but encouraging visit".

Sysav about the visit at a press release. Sysav (Sydskånes avfallsaktiebolag/South Scania Waste Company) receives, recycles and treats waste from households and industries in southern Skåne.
The City of Malmö was the first municipality in Sweden to sign on Agenda 2030 (UN's global sustainable development goals) and among others because of this HRH The Crown Princess today visited Malmö. The visit to Sysav began with an introduction to Sysav's mission and CEO Peter Engström told about the work to help create the world's most sustainable region.
The Crown Princess also listened to "Sopermannen", Environmental pedagogue, Rustan Nilsson, known from SVT's Sommarlov. He told more about the educational environmental work, that is, how Sysav teaches sustainability in practice to schoolchildren, and how Sysav works to raise awareness about sustainability as a global issue. She also learned more about the sorting of household waste and the challenges that exist.
After the lecture, the Crown Princess received a guided tour of Sysav's activities, including a bus tour at Spillepeng and a display of the waste-power plant.

About the visit to Drivkraft
Crown Princess Victoria asked curious questions about Driving Power
In how many places you work? How many participants are there? Can you receive all those who need help with their homework? Who are volunteers? How do you reach them? How do you want to grow? What do you need more?
Curiosity was great when an inquisitive crown princess visited Möllevångsskolan in Malmö. Victoria wants to know everything about the Drivkraft help organization.
Drivkraft is supported by the Crown Princess Couple's Foundation. The Foundation donates SEK four million annually to youth projects aimed at promoting good health and counteracting exclusion.
At Möllevångsskolan, Jessica Grundström and Principal Andreas Katsanikos gave the Crown Princess a thorough review of Drivkraft's work.
- We have 30 students at each homework reading session. In total, there may be 40, sometimes only 5-10 students, says Jessica Grundström.
A driving force for students is that those who improve the study results can get summer jobs at the real estate companies that sponsor the business.
The Crown Princess asks if Jessica Grundström has used many of her friends to get mentors for students and parents. She asks that isn't it "quite a lot of time" the mentors give. And she assumes that the mentors are good at finding activities with students and parents.
- But it's important that you as an organization direct your activities, she points out.
When she asks how Drivkraft can change, Jessica Grundström tells that many schools and municipalities want to take part in the business.
- We want to grow. Many want to join. But it requires more volunteers.

Today we have had the great pleasure of receiving Crown Princess Victoria at one of our schools where we were told about Drivkraft's work. In addition to meeting the principal and partners at Möllevångsskolan, the Crown Princess also met a number of our students and their mentors as well as students from our homework. An interesting and committed conversation with many laughs and touching stories gives us a wonderful friday feeling!

The royal court at their website about Victoria's visit in Malmö on Friday.
On Friday, March 23, the Crown Princess visited Malmö for information on City of Malmö's work on Agenda 2030. The day started at Form Design Center where the City of Malmö told about its work with Agenda 2030.

Malmö was the first to sign Agenda 2030 and works actively to work locally to contribute globally.
Then the Crown Princess received information about the development of Sege Park - a former healthcare facility planned to be rebuilt into a future sustainable residential area. The Crown Princess was given the opportunity to visit Sege Park where architect Juliet Leonette-Lidgren and Anna Heide from the real estate company Trion told about the plans.
Over the lunch, the Crown Princess visited Malmö Latinskola where rector Maria Jarlsdotter, teachers Elin Dahmberg and Sara Böök, as well as the students Fanny Svensson and Anna Jörgensson, spoke about the school's work with Agenda 2030 goals and how they are lifted into the school's work and teaching.

I love Victoria and think she will be an excellent queen, but her clothing choices just keep getting worse and worse IMO. This suit makes my eyes hurt. But hey, at least it's a color, I'm so tired of seeing royals and soon-to-be royals dressed in black this spring.
