Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old Swedish youth climate activist, daughter of actor&operasinger coupleSvante Thunberg & Malena Ernman, caught everyones attention at the
United Nations Climate Action Summit (!)
Monday the 23d of September
Greta reminded her audience
that she is, in fact, a child, one who would like
a fair shot at at future.
"This is all wrong, Thunberg told the representatives of 110 U.N member states. "I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to me for hope? How dare you? You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words"
Could not agree more and I blame myself as much as the U.N. All adults should take responsibility and do all they can on a everyday basis.
So what can we do? One of the major climate problems of our time is what we choose to eat. If you do not know how climate problematic the production and logistics of beef is to our planet then google now.
What I feel I have put off on a personal everyday basis, that I can do NOW that would make a difference is stop eating BEEF. No more cow meat on my plate from now on. I will learn more about what we can do in our everyday life to make a change for the better and take Climate Action now.

In may 2019, Thunberg was featured on the cover of TIME magazine, which named her a "NEXT GENERATION LEADER" and noted that many see her as a role model. Thunberg and the school strike movement were also featured in a 30 min VICE documentary titled "Make the world GRETA again" Some media have described her impact as the "GRETA Thunberg EFFECT"
Giving more of the everyday of the Vikings where both men and women are part of, as of lately made into very reliable tv drama serie by the name Vikings on HBO making this an even more hot topic for all ages.
I had not made it toVikingaliv, the museum I had been told were devoted to telling the true story behind the myth of the Viking.
So when the invite for The Viking Museum landed in my inbox, I made sure I could be there.
Really enjoy the choice of showing both the men and the women of the Viking Age being 793..ish (since it´s being debated lately) -1066 AD a period in the history of the Scandinavians during which they expanded and built settlements throughout Europe and beyond.
and when mom could join as well, we made to Djurgårdsvägen 47
with Djurgårdsfärjan from Slussen.
Since Vikingaliv the museum was called
The Viking Museum already,
they decided to make it their new name. New name, new logo.
A big thumbs up
for the live performance of which this museum built. Weaving the wool to the sails is shown and you are invited to try with instructions.
Can you imagine those big sails
made in wool
how when wet
must have weighed tons.
We are made aware of the everyday lifestyle of the real men and women of the Viking Age and that is really exciting.
