SAQ special programming on UN-Day, October 24

SAQ Grimeton
Join us in celebrating UN Day on October 24 at the World Heritage Grimeton!

This year, hundred years have passed since equal voting rights for men and women were introduced in Sweden. It is a human right that everyone can make their voices heard in fundamental issues and is prerequisite for creating a democratic and peaceful society. On this occasion, we want to raise the power of women in peace issues. Therefore the organization Acting 4 Change, that works with the project wome's empowerment in Casamance in Senegal, is invited to talk about women’s  participation in the peace process from a Senegalese perspective.

During the evening, a peace message is sent with the old long-wave transmitter SAQ and finally we listen to Senegalese rhythms performed by Kilimandiarou. The event is held in the radio station building with free admission. Arrive at the event on time, as there is a limited number of seats.
