Raising the level of education is crucial to a society's development. This can be accomplished through, for example, literacy campaigns in developing countries. Or by means of something as simple as ensuring that school children have access to writing implements, paper, books, backpacks, or glasses.
But it can also be achieved by increasing reading, writing, and language abilities in the Nordic countries. Or through greater educational aid.
Increased interest in the natural sciences is also important in the Nordic countries. Especially among young children. According to various surveys, Nordic youths have fallen behind in this regard.
Biltema Foundation wants to contribute to societal development through comprehensive initiatives across the education spectrum.
