Action Agenda 2030 is an educational and training project for civil society organisations based in The County of Norrbotten and The County of Västerbotten, Sweden, organized by the association Samforma.

The purpose of the project is to strengthen and use the potential embedded in the civil society to contribute to the implementation of Agenda 2030 by increasing knowledge and enhance collaboration.

Through its various roles as voice bearers, opinion leaders and service providers and with a diversity of associations, foundations, cooperatives, faith communities, networks and voluntary efforts, civil society discovers early needs and takes responsibility for helping to solve the problems and challenges that exist in society.

As Samforma operates in both The County of Norrbotten and Västerbotten in Sweden, the project is being implemented in both counties. Both joint and county-focused activities will be carried out in order to be able to meet the counties’ specific needs.

I have been asked to support the process as an educator, trainer and facilitator, and I am humbled to take on this task.
