Since 2012, Paideia has been on the steering committee of the One Sweden Network and beginning this year, is in charge of the project together with Kista Folkhögskola.
One Sweden is a network of Swedish organizations, with the common aim of utilizing and developing the power and potential of young people and of creating meetings and dialogue between different parts of society for a more democratic, inclusive and successful Sweden.
We believe that lack of influence, hope and optimism creates a breeding ground for polarization and extremism. With collective forces from a wide spectrum of civil society organization, we strive towards increasing societal inclusion and empowering young people to realize their potential to create change: in their community, in society and in politics.
Concretely, One Sweden aims to act as a nexus where organizations can engage in dialogue and cooperate, runs educational programs for project development and leadership, and poses relevant questions to society through conferences, meetings and fora.
Please find the projects in the first year of One Sweden’s educational program for leadership and program development here: One Sweden-akademin 2013
One Sweden consists of different and differing voices, but we are united around the vision of One Sweden: an inclusive, democratic and successful Sweden.
One Sweden’s website is here.
Next event: Network meeting Dec 4.
