E-day in Sweden explained

2022 is an election year in Sweden! On September 11 Swedes will have the opportunity to decide which candidates will represent them in the Parliament (Riksdag in Swedish) over the next four years. The Riksdag is the highest decision-making assembly in Sweden. Its tasks include making laws and determining the central government budget. The Riksdag also examines the work of the Government, Works with EU matters and shapes Swedish foreign policy together with the Government. Last time In the 2018 parliamentary elections, 87.2 percent of persons eligible to vote also chose to vote, which means that election turnout increased for the fourth consecutive election. In the 2022 election about 7,5 million Swedes have the chance to go to the polling stations.

Raoul Wallenberg – World War II hero

In Jerusalem there is a memorial, Yad Vashem, dedicated to the six million Jews murdered by the Nazis during World War II. A street named ‘Avenue of the Righteous’ runs through the area, bordered by 600 trees planted to honour the memory of non-Jewish individuals who risked their lives to save Jews from the Nazi executioners. One of these trees bears the name of Raoul Wallenberg.

Press freedom

Today, news consumers are constantly overwhelmed by information. To steer clear of false information, fake news and propaganda, source criticism is more crucial than ever. We asked an expert for advice. Hear Thomas Mattsson, senior advisor of Bonnier News and chairman of Swedish publishers’ association Utgivarna, on the importance of free press and how to verify sources. This video is available with English and Arabic subtitles and a clean version with SRT-files for local translation. There are versions in format 16:9 and 4:5.

Campaign for Knowledge & Learning Week at Expo 2020

In connection to Sweden’s Knowledge and Learning week at Expo 2020 Dubai on 12-18 December, the Swedish Institute provides a social media campaign for all foreign missions. Our focus is to communicate Sweden as a knowledge nation rather than to solely focusing on attracting on-site visitors to the Swedish pavilion in Dubai. The campaign content is therefore versatile and can be used by all foreign missions, not only the ones close to the Expo site. The goal of the campaign is to spark interest in the programme topics as well as direct people to a digital platform where events will be livestreamed. The campaign consists of nine different posts created for Facebook and Instagram: 3 posts with more general framing to create awareness around Knowledge and Learning Week at Expo 2020. 6 posts connected to various topics from the programme that we wish to highlight during the week. When using the campaign, we highly advise that you publish the posts according to the schedule provided. This is to make sure that all interested in participating digitally in the events will be directed to the livestream platform in time. Make sure to add the name of the photographer available in the text document. More on the material here: campaign purpose and background (pdf, English).

Together change is possible

PAMOJA – together change is possible

PAMOJA – together change is possible

Liliesleaf is one of South Africa’s foremost national heritage sites and a home to extraordinary exhibitions that tell the story of South Africa’s journey towards democracy. This toolkit is based on the web platform developed by Liliesleaf, in collaboration with the Swedish embassies in Angola, Botswana, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, Namibia, Tanzania, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The toolkit contains physical material for the embassies to launch the platform locally. Please note that only the Swedish embassies in countries mentioned above can apply to use this toolkit. About Pamoja is a story of international solidarity and a shared commitment to decolonisation and national liberation. It is also a story of the long cooperation between Sweden and ten countries in Africa. The project will include materials that use this story of solidarity as a basis for conversations about today’s global challenges, in order to create a sense of agency and encourage activism. The idea is to inspire young people of today to invest time and energy into making the world a better place for all. Together, change is possible. Instructions The exhibitions will be delivered as print files from SI. English, Portuguese and Swahili versions will be available. You can adjust the size of the exhibition according to your needs. SI recommends creating an outdoor exhibition. Financial support can be used to rent exhibition modules, and buy specific advertising (exhibit) outdoor/indoor space. You can also apply for extra money to build SI´s exhibition modules. The key to the success of this project is a partnership with tomorrow’s leaders and change-makers, creating events that help people engage and take an active part in the work towards a peaceful, just and equitable world. The Swedish Institute can assist with suggestions for participation in launches. A list is available with all participants in interviews and films on the Pamoja Web platform and with all activists in the photo exhibition. A good idea might be to mix participants from different countries. Building blocks Pamoja overview Photo exhibition Together change is possible – 20 activists from 10 countries in Africa on 12 panels, including introduction, share the conviction that solidarity creates change. (low resolution file) Also available in Portuguese and Swahili. Please apply and contact us for high resolution prints.

Inspirational stories The Embassy in Mozambique has worked with a broad program and many different activities to launch Pamoja – together change is possible, which is a web-based platform that describes Swedish support for decolonization and the fight against Apartheid in ten African countries.
