Every day, 28,300 people are forced to flee their homes from conflict and persecution. The situation is crisis-like, but in Sweden there is no longer any talk of a "refugee crisis". We got our respite. Unfortunately, the migrants have not received theirs. How do we rekindle the debate? And what does it take to create change?
After confessing our world anxiety in Almedalen 2016 and making an honest attempt to cure it in 2017, a question arose: Is world anxiety really something we want to get rid of? Maybe world anxiety is a driving force to affirm, if we get a little help on the run.
FUF and OmVärlden offer a different event that builds on last year's success Cure your world anxiety. Three seminars address each theme and begin with a treatment on the therapy couch. We talk about global challenges, and about how anxiety and frustration can be transformed into a workshop. Humor and seriousness are mixed around the theme of the day, and an artist presents his interpretation. Today we discuss migration.
