  • Description

    I am a 23-year old activist and organizer based in south-western Sweden. I have a deep interest in resilience, local autonomy, and resistance to global industrial capitalism. I intend to make it my life's work to facilitate and support organizing, mobilizing and empowering people in favour of those objectives.

    I am currently working 2-3 times a week with a local, small-scale CSA market garden, and will help them develop an incubator for new farmers.

    I am a coordinator for Lund food cooperative, which sells local organic produce and supports small-scale producers. I have helped facilitate a visioning process and will work on developing the cooperative's volunteering system.

    I am also working to develop a movement that i helped set up called Forest Rebellion (Skogsupproret in Swedish), which does direct action against the colonial destruction of Sweden's last natural forests.

  • More details about your skills

    I have some basic all-round experience in organic growing rom my work with a CSA market garden and volunteering experiences in five different countries. I have a good understanding of the principles and systems thinking underlying permaculture.

    I have some skills and experience from my organizing work that might prove useful. That includes managing, structuring and developing tasks, and thinking systematically about how to keep track of and improve them. I also have some experience of explaining and teaching new tasks to people, and am used to thinking about how to break down complex tasks into manageable steps and how to communicate their underlying purpose and principles.
