Gothenburg - 400 years and still innovative. Beda Hallberg (1869-1945) was driven by a strong commitment to children and young people and participated in voluntary care for the poor in Gothenburg during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. To expand the collection of money, she came up with the equally simple and brilliant idea of ​​giving a flower as a receipt to everyone who donated a penny. The first, so called Mayflower (Majblomman) was sold in 1907 and for fifty years the money from the collection went to help tuberculosis patients. The idea spread to other countries and the success of Majblomman made Beda Hallberg noticed and acclaimed both nationally and internationally. Nowadays, tuberculosis as a public disease has long been eradicated and the focus for Majblomman has therefor shifted to fight child poverty.
When we talk about sustainability today, social sustainability is one of the dimensions. Gothenburg has high ambitions in accordance with Agenda 2030 and the UN's 17 global goals for sustainable development, and our growing 400th anniversary will be developed in a socially sustainable way within the framework of nature's borders and with the economy as a tool.
There are challenges coming with this necessary shift, but also many possibilities - providing exciting business opportunities. Companies that take responsibility for their role in society not only win sympathy, they attract both potential customers and talented employees.

Gothenburg - 400 years and still innovative. With Roger Moore behind the wheel, the Volvo P1800 became world famous in the 60s TV series The Saint, responsible for the iconic car design was Pelle Petterson from Gothenburg. With his love for design combined with salty winds, Pelle Petterson is best known for designing sailing boats, not least the extremely popular Maxi boats, and various motorboats. More than 85,000 boats have been built according to Petterson's drawings, apart from boats he has also designed everything from lawnmowers to mopeds to roof boxes. And there is more, he also has medals from both the Olympics and World Cup in sailing and has been the driving force behind two of Sweden's America's Cup ventures.
Design, music and advertising from the Gothenburg region are gaining success worldwide. Designers are involved from an early stage of the business process and an integral part of industrial development. The creative climate in Gothenburg is vital and very central to the city's competitiveness and ability to attract talent. Culture not only has an intrinsic value in itself - a city embracing culture and creativity becomes an attractive city to stay in. Ask Pelle Petterson.
At Business Region Gothenburg, we are driven by the conviction that artists and creators play an important role in all kinds of innovation processes and we work actively to support the city's cultural and creative industries.
