The Swedish government would very much like Sweden to be a leading state in the environmental area. The question is if the country is on its’ way of becoming a, so-called green state, according to Robyn Eckersley’s definitions. The Swedish case is studied in the light of Eckersley’s theory within the following areas: thinking globally, acting locally and a more unbounded democracy including the very essential ingredient – access to environmental information. Various materials, such as governmental investigations and media, are used. In the final
discussion a new term – the light green state – is introduced. It is considered if there is need for such a definition and in that case what it would mean. It could be so that Eckersley’s green state is an ideal, an unreachable utopia, while the light green state is an achievable goal. Or the light green state could be the level a state must be on, before it can take the next step, becoming a true green state in Eckersley’s sense. (Less)
