Steven Woroniecki, Frida Buhre och Björn-Ola Linnér will attend the UN Climate Change Conference, Cop26, which opens on 31 October in Glasgow.
Frida Buhre works in research at the Department of Thematic Studies – Child Studies at Linköping University. At The Seed Box she serves as a postdoctoral fellow in Growing up in a Warming World, conducting research on the political aesthetics of the Fridays for Future.
“Children and young people who are active in the climate debate have staked a claim to co-determination and democratic representation. They are challenging the balance of power between children and adults, and question the monopoly held by adults in political decisions, in particular in climate policy, since the topic affects their lives more than those of the adults”, says Frida Buhre.
She will observe young climate campaigners from all over the world in Glasgow, how they work at the conference and how they collaborate with each other.
“I also plan to interview them, hear what they think and how they experience being part of Cop26.”
