2.en.48 From Stockholm to Kabul “Skateistan: To Live and Skate Kabul”

We set of this term visiting a green city, Stockholm, and moved on to finding a bit more about Sweden, its citizens and their way of life. All of you have discovered interesting facts such as Swedes’ environmental awareness.

It’s about time to talk about wealth and economy. According to the GDP (nominal) per capita ranking elaborated by the International Monetary Fund, in 2010, Sweden was situated among the top ten countries of the world, which means it is among the richest.

In case you look for Spain, its position is 25. See this link

In terms of wars, it is worth mentioning that Sweden has not been combatant in any war since 1814, close to 200 years.

Today,  we’ll go to la Caixa, to listen to a talk about Afghanistan. It will be our third talk this year, part of the series that aimed at broadening your perception of the world. Thanks to Chema Caballero, we learnt about child soldiers in Sierra Leone. In October, Ramón Lobo explained to us how difficult daily life is in conflict areas. Today, the last talk of Trobades amb compromis will be given by Mònica Bernabé and it is called “Afganistan, més enllà dels talibans”

So, from Sweden, we shall move to a totally different reality and find out more about a Afghanistan, a country that has been devastated by wars and conflicts for more than 30 years. In terms of wealth and economy it ranks at the other end of the list.

Sweden also ranks among the top countries in terms of gender equality while in Afghanistan most women lead an invisible life covered by burkas and deprived of most elementary human rights.

You will have the chance to talk to a woman journalist, Monica Bernabé,  that has experience what daily life in Afghanistan is like. I hope that you will also realise that, against all odds, something can always be done, even in the worst situations.

I would like you to have a look at this inspiring video. Let me know what you think of it. Do you think skateboarding can contribute to changing patterns of behaviour?

Now, 20 questions about the film that will make you reflect on what an initiative such as skateistan is perceived by the kids in Kabul.

  3. What does he say about his village Charekar?

  8. What are his tasks in the skate park?
  9. How does Murza describe his relationship with skating?
  10. What does Sharna Nolan do  in Skateistan?
  11. What is the main objective of Skateistan?
  12. How old is Fazilla?
  13. Where does she work?
  14. What can you see in the background when kids are skating on a rooftop?
