PUSH Sweden is the platform and a network where Swedish youth cooperate for sustainability. It is a young organisation, founded in February 2013, but has already gathered over 600 individual members and over 20 member organisations. PUSH Sweden’s aim is to gather all Swedish youth organisations and young individuals who want to actively work for a long-term sustainable society, primarily in Sweden but of course also in the rest of the world. With a “long-term sustainable society” PUSH Sweden mean a society which is organized in a way that do not imperil future generations’ abilities to have a good life. We want a society which uses our shared resources in a sustainable and just way. With “just” we mean both global justice and intergenerational equity. A long-term sustainable society therefore imply both ecological, social and economic sustainability. PUSH Sweden wants to create a united and strong voice for the young people in Sweden who seek to solve the climate crisis, and further motivate and inspire more young people to actively engage in this matter.
Through offering a platform and network projects come to life. The network is free for all youth who agree with our values’ platform. By offering meet-ups, trainings and collaborative platforms we help engaged youth to realise their own projects and ideas for a better future. We are enabling a new generation of changemakers.
