Here it is! One year-experience with FNUF! One year full of discoveries! One year to learn project management also to share and believe in an associative perspective. But mostly one year to hardly learn Swedish! I have heard from a Dane (!) that:
“Swedish language is the Italian accent of the Scandinavian language”.
So I was curious and I studied for 2 months but not enough to speak fluently. Men nästa gång kanske!
I have travelled more in one year than I have done in all my life! I organised a trip at the Jokkmokk market with FNUF and I have travelled across Sweden from Göteborg to Luleå to visit local organisations. I have been to Malmö, Copenhagen, but also Tallinn, Riga etc… All this travels made me think bigger, and I think it had an effect on the professional skills I learnt.
I discovered a deep interest for Sámi people. I learnt about their issues thanks to the support of FNUF. I think FNUF has the ability and the interest to create spaces of education and reflection about Sámi’s issues. I wanted to develop an educational project with and for FNUF members by inviting experts of these topics to highlight this issues within the Nordic countries. The project had not been completely executed but some cooperation has been built through this project.
Right now it is time for me to enjoy my last days in Sweden. I will go back in September, with my mind full of memories! Vi ses snart FNUF 😀
