THE SUSTAINABLE WORDS & VISION CHALLENGE

The Pangea Team and “Million Dreams Initiative” is proud to showcase this special Project Challenge which will launch later this summer in Blekinge, Sweden. The Sustainable Words & Visions Challenge aims to invite local classrooms and students to imagine a more sustainable future, recognizing that every generation deserves a future to look forward to, not to fear.

The project is initiated and supported by Pia Redin, a writer and language teacher who currently works as a Literature Coordinator for Region Blekinge, and was inspired by the visionary work of Nobel Laureate Harry Martinson who was awarded a joint Nobel Prize in Literature in 1974 “for writings that catch the dewdrop and reflect the cosmos”.

Sustainable Words & Visions was launched on World Environment Day 2020.  The goal is to reach youth, primarily by inspiring teachers and parents to ask the young ones to visualise a future they would like, then find an expert within the field of sustainability to give suggestions on where and how to start. Then, take action and take photos/record/document the work, and share it with their classmates and others, as well as showcase examples on the pangeachallenge.org website, to inspire others! All year around we will be sharing new stories about how plants have been shared between friends, how youth have asked for more sustainable food in the canteen and how new energy has been created within inclusive groups working for a sustainable future they look forward to. That is all! Start with a vision, end with documentation of action – to inspire to more action!

The Pangea Challenge Team proudly joins Sustainable Words & Visions as part of this mind changing challenge, inspiring youth to co-create their future. During the year, Pia Redin will share with you, how the work in Blekinge proceeds and we will give you updates, tips and incitements on how to co-create a sustainable future simply by Words&Visions.

For those in Blekinge who would like to participate or learn more, you may contact Pia directly at swv@regionblekinge.se.
