About us

The Department of Natural Resources is a part of Region Västra Götaland and receives its directives from the Regional Development Committee which in turn is a part of the Regional Executive Board. We are responsible for three natural resource schools at an upper secondary level (Svenljunga, Sötåsen and Uddetorp) and one at higher vocational education level (Biological Post-Secondary VET School, BYS).


 Our mission is to provide vocational education in the areas of agriculture, forestry, animal care, etc. In addition, we act as competence center for natural resources and rural entrepreneurship and are actively involved rural development for a sustainable future.
