Event summary: Seminar and photo vernissage to celebrate the International Day of Forests, organised by Focali, SIANI, SEI and Trase.

30 years ago, “Barnens regnskog” campaign spread across 4000 Swedish schools to protect rainforest in Costa Rica. What happened to the rainforest and how can we learn from this campaign?

Can we find inspiration for our work to reduce deforestation and restore nature today? How can we keep up hope during these challenging times? What role can journalism, storytelling, and photos play to share knowledge and inspire action? These are some of the essential questions that will be discussed during the upcoming seminar. We’ll be joined by two guest speakers and a panel for an engaging journey of exploration.


Lounge room. Stockholm Environment Institute, Linnégatan 87D, Stockholm.
