Cajsa Andersson is currently employed as a project planner for Karlskrona municipality. Her interest and passion for sustainable mobility has given her the chance to work for the transition to a more sustainable and effective transport system in her hometown Karlskrona.
Cajsa has a bachelor’s degree in international social science with a major in peace and development, which allows her to take a different and more holistic perspective on the importance of sustainable mobility. She has gathered several years of experience living and acting abroad, both during and outside of her studies. She has lived in countries such as Belgium, Canada and France for exchange studies, internships, volunteering and more. This gave her many learning opportunities and allowed her to obtain excellent English as well as an intermediary level of French. During her time in Canada, she volunteered for the Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of Women (CRIAW), which gave her insight into how planning often affects women and their opportunities.
She has also gained EU experience through projects and an internship at the EU office of three Swedish regions (Småland, Blekinge, Halland) in Brussels. During her time in Brussels, she developed a great interest in sustainable mobility, as it was a hot and upcoming topic in the EU sphere at the time. This experience enabled her to gain employment within the EU project cities.multimodal, as Karlskrona municipality is one of the members of the project. The project itself aims to increase multimodality and sustainable mobility in 10 cities around the Baltic sea region. Furthermore, Cajsa is responsible for many of the projects relating to sustainable mobility at Karlskrona municipality, including the establishment of the public car and bike sharing system in the city and several mobility management campaigns. She has also gained experience of project applications, as Karlskrona is striving forward and finding more ways to implement sustainable mobility within the city.
