The logo of the tercentenary is based on a picture that was painted by the leading botanical artist of his day, Georg Dilnys Ehret. The painting illustrates Class 10 of the sexual system.

Reasons for Celebrating Carl Linnaeus

Carl Linnaeus was born nearly 300 years ago in a small village in Småland, Råshult. Celebrations of the tercentenary are currently being prepared throughout Sweden and in many places abroad. The Linnaeus Tercentenary will offer many exciting events - from scientific conferences to lectures for the general public, exhibitions, Linnaeus rambles in the countryside, and guided tours of the Linnaeus Sites in Småland and Uppland.

The Linnaeus Tercentenary has two clear goals. The first goal is to increase interest for science among children and young people; the second goal is to present a full-faceted image of Carl Linnaeus for the general public. The tercentenary is centred on the concepts of Creativity - Curiosity - Science. These principles form the basis for all events and they have set their stamp on the preparations.
