Newsletter Week 15


While in some places, the entire country shuts down for Easter ("påsk"), you are in luck, Sweden is not one of these countries! So if you are not travelling home, or travelling this weekend, check out some events going on in Stockholm this week and next.

If you feel cold (the weather is not the best) or alone (maybe all your friends have gone home for holidays) during Easter check out our HOT events like African Night and Latino Spring Jam! Or even better, spread some love and warmness by volunteering - Everyone deserves love during Easter.

Peace and Love,

Emma, Linnea, Erica
