The Right of Public Access
In Sweden we have something that is totally unique – Allemansrätten or The Right of Public Access as it is known in English. It gives you the right to roam freely in nature, pitch a tent, light a campfire and forage for mushrooms and berries in the forest. It gives everyone the right to discover and enjoy nature, but it also expects you to take responsibility for nature and wildlife and to show respect towards landowners and other visitors.
This year it is even more important to think about the Right of Public Access. More visitors will be out exploring our nature than ever before, which will place greater demands on the services on offer than usual. It is therefore extra important that we all make the effort to leave a place in better shape than how we found it.
