Projects we support
World Childhood Foundation
Support us in our overall work to prevent violence and sexual abuse of children.
According to a current study, one in five children in Sweden is exposed to sexual abuse at some point during their childhood. Different types of violence and sexual abuse are closely linked. Children who have been abused or witnessed violence are at increased risk of being exposed again. But it is possible to prevent and mitigate the consequences of an abuse, above all it is easier to build strong children than to fix broken adults. Therefore, the key word in everything we do is prevention. Childhood works primarily with the groups that are most at risk of being exposed to violence and sexual abuse. These include children living on the streets, children who have already been subjected to violence and abuse, children who cannot live with their parents or who live in a family where the parents do not have the strength to be what the children need most - safe adults.
Tre Kronor takes the match against bullying
60,000 children are bullied every year. These are children who go to school or exercise with a lump in their stomach. Children deprived of the security to which they are entitled. By being positive role models, we create a society for our children that promotes openness and understanding of differences. All adults, regardless of whether we are parents, work with children or meet children in other contexts, must take responsibility for children's right to avoid bullying. Within the association's activities, we want to highlight the importance of seeing the whole person and understanding that good development environments are what make people grow, both as hockey players but also as people. It is also about taking the fight against bullying. Therefore, this collaboration feels very good and hopefully through the collaboration with Friends we can offer a fun experience for as many as possible at the same time if the money goes to a business that goes hand in hand with our values, says Jesper Björck, Marketing Manager at the Swedish Ice Hockey Association.
The Fisheries Secretariat
Help us save fish species
Many fish species are threatened in the Baltic Sea. This is something we want to change. Our goal is well managed seas with rich biodiversity and thriving fish stocks to secure healthy and local seafood to consumers and a sustainable fishing sector. Did you know that that the European eel population (Anguilla anguilla) has declined dramatically since the 1970s. In less than 50 years, it has gone from one of our largest, most widespread fishery resources to a critically endangered species. With millions of glass eels still arriving at the European coast line, it is perhaps hard to imagine that it is threatened, but its distribution has shrunk and the population is down to somewhere around 1–10 % of earlier levels. Changes in marine environments, damage to habitats, pollution, parasites, overfishing and a substantial illegal trade, as well as hydro-electric power turbines have all had a negative impact. European eel is also the focus of large-scale illegal trade, with glass eel trafficking now recognised as Europe’s greatest wildlife crime, targeted by Europol’s Operation Fame. Let us help the eel and all other fish species that are threatened in the Baltic Sea. Join us in our work for a sustainable fisheries.
