-to examine, support and actively expand Climate 'Action'!
-to enable a living wage and reasonable working conditions for people working with the 'action' sector.
-to actively encourage Climate Action to reduct Climate Anxiety!
'Deltidsarbete är också ett stort problem i akademin i Europa, vilket hänger ihop med osäkra anställningar. Enligt den här rapporten är andelen deltidsanställningar inom akademin i Sverige hela 28 procent.'
Anglo-saxons usually do not trust their governments, whereas Swedes do. The first and second Swedish voters, are unlikely to be aware of this cultural conflict. This cultural conflict will naturally put Swedes at a higher risk of Climate anxiety. A good way to reduce Climate anxiety is via Action!
Motiv och bakgrund:
Hannah Arendt?s division of human activity into categories of ?labour,? ?work? and ?action? in her 1958 book The Human Condition.
Divide employment into these three sectors, labour (often also called care), work and action.
Labour is mainly about taking care of needs, eating, sleeping, care of young old and healthy. Sweden is good at converting labour into a formalised economy and creating professions.
Work is about building infrastructure and in many cases the infrastructure to enable the labour of care, eg. schools and hospitals.
Action is about learning, journalism, föreningar, union organisationer and creating a reasonable system to find solutions together, e.g. democracy.
It is necessary to examine changes to 'action' as a sector, over the last 30 years. Examine both the wages and the working conditions. The wages seem to have stagnated and in many cases the working conditions are far more unstable. Contract and part time based work for academics, researchers and journalists is a typical example. The way unions are being limited, economically through tax changes, and the freedom of association in may ways around the world is another, the right to strike and protest is also being weakening.
This process to reduce security and conditions for people working in the 'action' sector is undermining political 'action'. These individuals have less have time and energy for political action in Sweden. This effects our ability to react against Climate Destruction.
As an Australian who has been fascinated by Anglo-Saxon denial methods since I first voted, I think the climate denial is particularly interesting. Anglo-saxons usually do not trust their governments, whereas Swedes do. The first and second Swedish voters, who learned to rely on governments in school, are probably not aware of this cultural conflict. This cultural conflict will naturally put Swedes at a higher risk of Climate anxiety. This is particularily alarming for young people, who often look up to the English speaking foreigners, wealth and social media competence. Anxiety is coupled to self harm. A good way to reduce Climate anxiety is via Action! Therefore we need to educate our health organisations quickly. One valid health organisation preparation and tool is to teach individuals about how to undertake actions with real Climate benefit. Climate actions included humour, standing up and civil disobidience should be explored and probably encouraged. These young people know we are desparate and they will see half hearted efforts as 'fake'.
