If more young people focus on healthier ideals, it will cause them to feel better by having healthier lifestyles. All the energy and time needed to think about what to eat and how to look, they would instead use to first of all strengthen themselves and feeling good. Adore yourself is an online course where young people learn about the body, food, fitness, self-confidence and self-esteem in a fun way that inspires and motivates them to really accept themselves just as they are.

OUR TIME ON EARTH
Together with the museums in Malmö an exhibition will be created that connects to a number of relevant lectures. The exhibition is based on the book “OUR TIME ON EARTH” – the welfare of the planet sustainable limits – written by Professor J. Rock Power & NG photographer Mattias Klum. The exhibition is aimed at children (special ‘feel – the picture show” for children), school children, students, corporations and municipalities. Everyone should have the opportunity to experience the beauty of the earth but also its fragility.
The goal is to tie the Technical Museum, and possibly other science centre in Skåne to the schools and thus enabling students to a possible contact with the scientific community. The aim is to increase interest and enthusiasm for science subjects, balancing theory with experiment, i.e. meet the students who have a learning style that is more focused on experimenting than to study theory and to spread understanding and insight of the scientific method and especially the interactions between experiments and theory.

Anagram Live AB/Yasemin Arhan Modéer
The reading problem among young people is one of our most pressing social, cultural and democratic issues. Not only because the competence for reading comprehension decreases so quickly, but also because the problem is cutting across all groups and strata of society. One problem with reading difficulty is that the groups and sectors most affected are rarely or never meet. Schools, libraries, book industry and scientists discuss all in their own organizations. README wants to change this. README will be an annual conference on reading.
