How It Begins

You are Arvid Falk, the newest civil servant at the The National Board of Sustainable Development. You are carrying an open and empty briefcase, and standing outside the entrance to the Board's building on King's Street.

You will be working for The Unit in The Department on the first floor upstairs. You have an appointment with Anna Frid, the Head of The Unit. During your meeting, you'll learn that your task will be "to analyse how authorities can meet the challenge of sustainable development by putting people at the centre and turning current examples of good practice into established common practice, to achieve a better quality of life for all."
