The Raoul Wallenberg Day was celebrated today in Stockholm.
NVP Scandinavia has entered in a partnership with the Raoul Wallenberg Academy and will showcase a civil courage activity at the Raoul Wallenberg Academy schools this fall as a first step of the partnership.
Raoul Wallenberg is one of NVP's "role models" used in the educational program's creative activities as an example of a good example, a strong civil courage and a non-violent perspective on difficulties and conflicts.
The Raoul Wallenberg Foundation also awarded their second award to a person who have made important efforts against xenophobia and for equal rights for all people. This year's winner was Emir Selimi, the founder of the organization Young Romani People. Emir:
"It feels fantastic, I can hardly express it in words what it means to us to be recognized like this in the spirit of Raul Wallenberg, he was such a fantastic human being."
