Church of Sweden Youth are working with two different kinds of global issues; fair trade (Fair Trade labelling and the Clean cloths campaign) and climate changes.
The work on climate changes includes a material which gives knowledge about the topic and also provides children and youths with tools for taking action. The material is called “Klimatlådan”, the climate box.
I connection to the Interfaith Climate Summit in Uppsala 28-30 november in Uppsala Church of Sweden were part of an ecumenical training for youths on climate changes. The yout learnt a lot on climate changes and were’re involved in work-shops on how to talk about climate changes; to children and to grown-ups. And they also learnt how to deal with media and how to act on the street to improve the knowledge among the public. It was a great week-end and not only did the youths became experts on climate, the ecumenical movement in Sweden was improved.
