Having worked as a journalist most of my life, I have had the great pleasure of being able to ask anyone anything. This has made me very humble as to different life choices, ways of understanding the world and all the impressive power we humans hold – each and every one of us. Lately I have also been fortunate enough to work closely with that, which is the foundation of our possibility to live freely – democracy. Here is a small collection of work-related events.
Some things I’ve been inolved in
Work on the committée to strengthen democracy in Sweden drew to a close in spring 2022. As a “grande finale” we arranged a conference on democracy at the Stockholm House of Culture & City Theatre. The day was filled to the brim with interesting conversations on a various range of topics as well as dance, poetry and music. Six of the sessions we did are available through UR Play.

Freedom of the press is one of the most important pillars of any democracy. That is why I was so happy to be able to organise these talks on press freedom and its challenges during times of corona and other imminent threats.
It was recorded by UR – where I used to work. Through UR, this important discussion can be used as a basis for teaching about freedom of the press in schools all around the country.
In combining my love for literature with my passion for listening experiences and education, I have produced some children’s books as radio programmes. “Jag håller om trädet när det blåser” by Inger Lindahl, and “Elmer Djurdoktor” by Ulf Stark, were both recorded with the actress Siri Fagerudd.
I also had the privilege of producing a wonderful children’s book by Viveka Sjögren. Working with actor Jarmo Mäkinen was a true pleasure. The book is called “Om du skulle fråga Micha” (If you were to ask Micha) – and is a story about a young child fleeing war and discovering another reality.
