About Kajsa

FullSizeRender (14)Welcome to my blog, happy to see you here!

My big passion is storytelling and leadership for sustainability. I believe the future is about improving the places you affect, and strengthening the communities that surround you. It is a new growth-mentality defining sustainable cultures.

With compassion as the core of decision-making, new mindsets will see the light of day, and organisations who master a mutually beneficial relationship with their community will take leadership.

My mission is to help each other move forward in a world that is rapidly changing. When navigating through new paradigms we need not only new mindsets but also physical places and products that connect us to these future fit ways of thinking.

I was born in Sweden, 1987, to my Swedish mother and Danish father in the very north where there are more reindeer and mountains than people. We moved to Denmark in 1993 and I spent most of my days playing the violin, and when I later got a docent from the Royal Academy of Music I moved to Copenhagen. Unfortunately, I broke my hand.

I resaddled and started studying business communication and later got a philosophical degree in literature from Lund University. I received my M.A. from University of New Orléans in December 2014.

Back in 2009 I co-founded Cultura21, an organisation for sustainable cultures.

In 2014, I was awarded Future Sustainability Leader by DNV GL for my work with Cultura21 and joined world leaders in developing new thoughts and visions for the safe and sustainable future.

In 2015, I was nominated for the Inspired Leadership Award by The Performance Theatre, a fantastic honour, as previous winners count some of my heroes Richard Branson and Melinda Gates.

Today, I’m blogging about climate change adaptation and leadership in both Danish and International media. During COP21, I will be hosting my own blog in Denmark’s most read newspaper Ekstrabladet focusing on making climate change solutions and adaptation a mainstream topic. And as of October 2015, I will be blogging for Huffington Post.

If you are Danish speaking, you might find interest in the series about language and sustainability I co-hosted on Danish National Radio P1 “Sproglaboratoriet” alongside hostess Helle Solvang: http://www.dr.dk/p1/sproglaboratoriet/artikel/0507101612.htm
