Speech by Swedish Minister for Culture and Democracy

In her congratulatory speech, Minister Alice Bah Kuhnke mentioned difficulties facing young people today.

– Teenage-years are a bit like no man´s land. No one is invited to come close and there are no clear sign posts for direction. It is comfortable for the rest of us to keep it on a certain distance. And it can be awfully difficult to dig into our teenagers’ emotions since it forces us to reflect on our own lives.
