Green Cross Sweden supports Göteborg March for Climate & Peace

On Saturday, April 29, people worldwide will advocate global action against climate change with “People’s Climate Marches” around the planet. Green Cross Sweden is one of the organizers of the “GBG March for Climate and Peace” together with Walk2Peace and Friends of Earth. The Göteborg march starts on the city’s western outskirts and will end with concerts and events in the centre of Goteborg.

In particular, Green Cross Sweden is hosting two inspiring events: at 16:00, “Indigenous Voices from Turtle Island and the Land of the Midnight Sun”, with speakers Tiokasin Ghosthorse and Laila Spik (both Green Cross Sweden ambassadors), will take place at Sea Rescue Society, Talattgatan 24 in Västra Frölunda. In the evening, at 19:00, a Green Cross musical event will be held at the Haga Church of Sweden with “A Concert for Mother Earth”. The concert features a special performance by Ebbot Lundberg, the acclaimed Swedish singer and acoustic guitarist, and also a Green Cross Sweden ambassador, together with Tiokasin Ghosthorse. Ghosthorse, who is from Cheyenne River Lakota Nation, plays the ancient Lakota flute. They are accompanied by Martin McFaul, Sofia Assarsson and Gunnar Frick. The day’s events will also include “The Peace Concert with 12 Prayers “, at 17:00 at the Masthugg Church of Sweden – a concert composed by Peter Elmberg uniting 12 prayers from different religions into a call for our planet, Mother Earth.
