On October 17th Wake-Up Call’s representatives Malin, Lovisa and Johline held an inspirational kick-off for those sixty students of a model school for sustainability in Malmö, Nya Malmö Latin, who will go to the Conference of Youth (aka Power Shift Central and Eastern Europe) that will take place just before COP19 in Warsaw. Thursday morning was filled with inspiration and information, while the afternoon gave space for action planning and to form new ideas for a better world.
The end of the day was just the beginning for many students. Many new ideas, thoughts and new inspiration were born, when the “Power Teams” that we created presented their ideas in front of the rest of the students. Project ideas that were developed during the day can all be implemented in reality, and many of the group were eager to push these ideas forward in their school. We at Wake-Up Call are really looking forward to see how these ideas will be accepted by the school’s management and how they will be implemented in the school. It was also fantastic to talk to enthusiastic teachers who were confident in their students’ capacity to take these ideas forward and actually make something real out of them. Another great day in Malmö!
