For anyone working in winter sports, climate changes are particularly noticeable. Alpine athletes all over the world have seen the glaciers melting and ski slopes disappearing.
During the second week at Åre 2019, five alpine stars in the Ski Team Sweden Alpine will take their seat in Åre 2019 sponsor Vattenfall’s pavilion in the Sponsor Village to discuss their experiences by former professional skier Jens Byggmark and climate coach Lasse Ejeklint. One of the major issues to discuss will be whether it is possible to be climate savvy while competing at top level.
Vattenfall invites everyone to share the “Vattenfall World Championships Couch” with the Ski Team Sweden Alpine and pose their questions to Matts Olsson, Frida Hansdotter, André Myhrer and Mattias Hargin.
“The more the merrier”, said Lasse Ejeklint, who hopes that all who have experienced Åre 2019 have learned that it is possible to do something to reduce their climate impact, and that it is important to do something, anything at all.
“Of course, I hope many will take the chance to meet our alpine stars. But above all, I wish that our visitors will realize that it is possible to impact the environment in a positive way and that there is a future,” said Ejeklint and continued:
“Maybe someone will drive a little slower on their way home or start thinking about changing their car into an electric one. The most important thing is to do something”.
Come and meet the stars:
