You cannot do everything but everyone can do something! That applies to everyone in Åre attending the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships – please pick up any trash you see on the ground to help create a tidier world for all of us.

Today Friday, we start to PLOGGA with our meeting point at the National Arena at 17:15 CET and run in direction of Åre Square. Erik Ahlström, a long-time Åre resident, is on site at Åre 2019 and will lead the activity.

-        Obviously, you do not need to be runner to join PLOGGA, you can also walk, ski, paddle or cycle, move as you wish. What we are trying to do is to change people’s attitudes and behavior so that everyone picks up any trash they see. Everyone can be a proud trash picker, said Erik.

Friday’s Plogga event is the first of three, with the group moving from the Arena to Medals Plaza. On Saturday and Sunday, Plogga will start at Åre Square at 11:00 CET and finish at the National Arena just before the downhill races.

PLOGGA was founded in Sweden in 2016 and is both a club and movement that aims to promote the transition toward sustainable society. Plogga is currently active on all five continents and 45 countries. The movement’s aim is to create a clean world.

Where life can be lived - reflections of a volonteer19.2.2019 09:34:46Pressmeddelande

Yet another Alpine World Championship in Åre has come to an end. The third through the years. Skiers, visitors and volunteers have lived and breathed the World Championships for weeks. The organization has done the same for years. Beyond all the races that have been raced, the medals that have been awarded, something else has taken place. Perhaps the thoughts have been thought before, maybe they have been awaken when being here. Thoughts of the real meaning of life, or rather, thoughts of what kind of life we want to live. Thoughts of where our children should grow up, of where our everyday lives should take place. Where life should be lived.
