Giant youth fair hopes to tackle tough issues
The MY youth fair is in its third year and features cultural and sport activities for kids, as well as information about how to plan for their futures and how to deal with difficult social issues like drugs, alcohol and sexuality.
The fair, for young people between ten and twenty, is held at the convention center in the Stockholm suburb Älvsjö. In 2014, around 12,000 attended the fair.
Festival organizer Gunnar Svensson says there were even more this year.
Some of the issues discussed at the fair include transexuality and also feminism. Gunnar Svensson says to Radio Sweden he thinks the organisers have a responsibility to make sure the fair goers get exposed to important issues.
