What we do

Last changed: 24 August 2021

The Swedish Centre for Nature Interpretation was established in 2007 by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences with the aim of serving as a meeting place, a centre for development and a competence resource for all nature interpreters in Sweden.

Nature interpreters help visitors and participants in activities develop their own personal relationships with nature and the cultural landscape. Nature interpreters are active in places such as government authorities, visitor centres, tourism companies, museums and non-profit organisations. There are about 2 000 nature and heritage interpreters in our Swedish network.

We also collaborate internationally. SCNI is member of Interpret Europe, Association for Heritage Interpretation, and the National Association for Interpretation.

Much of the information and publications on the SCNI website is in Swedish, but we are happy to answer your questions! Please, do not hesitate to contact us.
