In the afternoon Finnish Schools on the Move project was presented to Daniel at the Juvanpuisto School, how schoolchildren can be encouraged to move more.
Prince Daniel visited Espoo at Juvanpuisto School. Daniel is in Finland getting acquainted with Finnish teaching and functional teaching.
The visit of Daniel raised a lot of interest in pupils and the smallest pupils were curious about what the title of Daniel is.
- Is that the king? children asked.
Daniel got to know the school in a classroom where the pupils don't sit at traditional pulpits, but schoolchildren can choose to work with standing or, for example, sitting on a gym ball.
- Many of you seem pretty active. What are you doing now? And you have activity trackers in your wrists, Daniel noted.
Daniel was presented with how the wristband measures the activity of schoolchildren during the school day.
Daniel made the pupils laugh by joking that the activity wristband would be a great tool to measure both his and Crown Princess Victoria's little Oscar boy during the day.
- I have a 2 year old boy and if I would give that to him ... Daniel grinned and demonstrated how lively Oscar was running around.
In the gym, Daniel was shown how students should move according to a particular heart rate zone. Children demonstrate how to increase the heart rate with lunges, jumping jacks and abdominal movements.
- I'm impressed, Daniel admirers.
Daniel talked to a pupil who had to get high heart rate. The prince said him to make lunges the other end of the hall and back.
- Well, how does it look, the prince asked the boy after the exercise.
- It's a good business, Daniel guided when the heartbeat had risen.
Daniel's guides were Iisak and Tinja from the 9th grade, they told Daniel that he was very relaxed, kind and easy to approach.
- Yesterday had to put Netflix in swedish to know the best phrases, Iisakki told Ilta-Sanomat about preparing for the prince's visit.
The 15-year-old student was not nervous about the visit of the prince.
- We watched a little bit about School on the Move. The best is to improvise.
Daniel talked with the young people for a long time and asked about the School on the Move project.
- Daniel was terribly interested in the Schoon on the project and how we work here. He was really relaxed, says Isaac.
- I wasn't nervous about meeting him. Daniel was relaxed and friendly, Tinja said.

Hufvudstadsbladet tells that Daniel and finnish minister Sampo Terho talked about ice hockey. Minister Terho spoke english with Daniel.
Hufvudstadsbladet asked Daniel:
How does the prince think Sweden is doing the ice hockey world championships?
- I believe in victory but Finland will be our hardest opponent. Only in ice hockey contexts we are not friends.
As a gift Daniel got a book where the students had written down their own thoughts about well-being, a blue and white beach ball and a cloth box with Drumsö motive.

At Daniel's and minister Annika Strandhäll's entourage were also managing director Gerda Nilsson Tjernström and project leader Marie Harding from Generation Pep.

The royal court about the visit:

Prince Daniel visited with a delegation from the Ministry of Health and Social Affairs, Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions as well as Generation Pep Helsinki and Espoo to take part in the Finnish program Schools on the Move.
The goal is for all elementary school students to move for at least 60 minutes a day. Activities at schools include activities for active breaks, physical activity as part of teaching and so-called active school transport.
In the morning, the Prince with delegation was received by Finland's Minister for European Affairs, Culture and Sport Sampo Terho and Mayor of Helsinki Jan Vapaavuori at the Drumsö School in Helsinki.
Then the Prince was directed by the rectors Anna-Maria Rosenqvist and Ronnie Rehn together with two students. The delegation from Sweden visited classrooms where students and teachers demonstrated how physical activity is integrated into teaching. The tour continued with visits to the schoolyard and gymnastics hall.
During lunch, the Prince and the delegation subsequently met with representatives from schools in Kotka, Pedersöre, Hämeenlinna and Seinäjoki, as well as officials from the Ministry of Education, regional authorities and other organizations working with the Schools on the Move.
The afternoon was spent at Juvanpuisto school in Espoo, where the delegation was received by Rector Vesa Äyräs, Municipal Education Director Kaisu Toivonen and two students. Then followed tour in the school, and the Prince met, among other things, high school students who were physically active during class, for example by sitting on a motion cycle.
In the end, the Prince met students who had a health education in the gym. During the lesson, students were given a heart rate monitor and, at the end of the lesson, they were able to discuss their results.

The court updated their calendar today.
Daniel visits the Netherlands (Amsterdam) on 23rd-24th May, according to the calendar "Visiting the Netherlands with a focus on entrepreneurship", so I think that it is Prince Daniel's Fellowship and Entrepreneurial Programme's entrepreneurial trip this time again.

Thanks, LadyFinn.

To me it clearly looks like Daniel (as any normal human being would) is thinking: "I don't know what the hoot that is! But I'd better look interested... - Wish I was in Copenhagen enjoying a cold beer..."

Short video of Daniel speaking

Royal gloss at the opening of Special Olympics Games
This year's Special Olympics Games in Gothenburg were opened with a big pomp and circumstance in Lisebergshallen during Friday night.
In addition to 900 athletes, Prince Daniel was also in place.
- I feel excited for standing here, and I will not even compete, said the prince in his opening speech.
Artists Jessica Andersson and Erik Segerstedt performed in the gaps that arose between the moments where the athletes were allowed to go parade up the stage, sport for sports, and receive the applause of their fellow athletes
Prince Daniel was seen doing high-fives with athletes when they went off the stage. To many in the audience, the prince's presence was a highlight in the evening and when it was time for him to keep his speech there were many in the audience who shouted his name.
The Prince began his speech to show his appreciation for those involved in the competitions of the coming days:
- I see 900 enthusiastic athletes, parents, volunteer leaders in front of me, all of you who struggle so hard, to make sport accessible to everyone. What is most obvious is your fight. It feels like it lights up throughout Lisebergshallen, said Prince Daniel.
The Prince also talked about the importance of doing his best and having fun:
- Another thing that is great is the feeling when you are doing your utmost, but even though you are doing your utmost, it's not certain that you win. As long as you do your best you are always one winner. I think you should take that with you, to do your best and have fun.
After the prince's speech a torch was lit and thus the games were opened.

Daniel said in his speech among other things:
In Sweden, we have the forest and the ore to thank for very much. But without any entrepreneurs, it had still been trees and stones, instead of jobs and export earnings.
That is why we need more people like you. More who want and more who dare. Because you dear young people of Young Enterprise will not only build your businesses. You will build our Sweden in the future.

Daniel was on Sunday evening in Copenhagen at the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championships Gold medal game between Sweden and Switzerland.
"A little crazy that Crown Prince Frederik (who turns 50 on Saturday) does not take his bestie and buddy (he just shared popcorn with) Prince Daniel to hand out medals to Sweden ?!"


And Sweden won gold again!

The Swedish prince Daniel noted that the Dutch are the tallest people in the world. Prince Constantijn had a nice theory about that.
The two princes are on Wednesday in Amsterdam to speak about the position of new companies in the Netherlands and Sweden. They talk about how the government can help them and encourage them to grow. They also discuss the differences between Swedish entrepreneurial culture and those of the Netherlands.
