The Global Square (Globala Torget) is part of the Göteborg Book Fair in Gothenburg, Sweden. It is a network of NGO’s, publishers, trade unions, businesses and agencies working with international issues and development co-operation. Our goal is to spread qualified information about global development issues to the many visitors – from Sweden and elsewhere. Many visitors attend the programs presented at our stage. During the four days of the fair we present about 70 sessions.
The Göteborg Book Fair is a manifestation of literature, arts and culture. A whirlwind of ideas and opinions. A tribute to freedom of expression. A place for readers and writers to meet and celebrate the power of stories. And, with approximately 100,000 annual visitors, it is in fact the largest cultural event in Scandinavia.
