Sofie Öberg Magnusson

Sofie’s background is in peace and development studies with an MA in international administration and global governance. Sofie was drawn to the Museums of World Culture as she saw a possibility to work with two great interests – cultural expressions from around the world and social sustainability. Since Sofie began her work with the overarching sustainability coordination of the organisation, she has gained a growing interest for environmental sustainability in general and the culture sector in particular. Since 2017 Sofie co-lead the transformation of the environmental management system in the organisation, and have since then worked for a more holistic sustainability approach. Sofie has also been part of the project group for an exhibition about sustainable consumption and initiated a project for enhanced cooperation between museums in Sweden. Sofie’s interest and engagement in the subject has also led to her speaking at two international conferences, mainly about the natural connection between museum work and the sustainable development goals. And the importance of an inclusive and representative approach regardless of the theme of the activities.
