The annual Bolin Centre Climate Festival for youth took place between the 21st and the 23rd of May at Stockholm University. The festival is a way to increase the engagement of youth in middle and high school in climate issues. During the festival, the students had the chance to meet researchers, attend lectures and participate in various activities related to climate change. SIANI took part in the festival, along with other organisations, including Föreningen för Utvecklingsfrågor (FUF), Fältbiologerna and Svenskt Sigill.
SIANI participated with an exciting interactive exhibition which consisted of a quiz about agriculture, sustainable consumption and climate change. Surprisingly, the majority of students were unaware of the environmental impacts of milk products. Although the questions were rather simplified, most students had not considered how water usage and carbon dioxide emissions vary between production processes. Try out the quiz yourself and see how much you know about sustainability and food!
