The royal court about Victoria's speech at "Jokainen vaikuttaa! / Alla påverkar! / We all make difference!" conference.

On Tuesday, June 8, Victoria participated with a greeting at the digital conference "Alla påverkar!". In 2021, Finland chairs the Nordic Council of Ministers, and in co-operation with Åland, the Nordic Council of Ministers organize the Virtual conference on education, culture and young people as drivers of sustainable development", which takes place 8-9 June.

Victoria's speech, she said among other things
"Like many other Swedes, I feel a strong community with our Finnish neighbors. The friendship between our two countries is in turn part of a larger Nordic community, with strong historical roots.
We are used to close contacts and travel. By collaborating, helping each other and learning from each other.
In parts of our countries, where people commute to work on a daily basis, the border is usually something quite theoretical: only in times of war and unrest do we become aware that it is there."

Right after Victoria had participated at Gothenburg's 400 anniversary celebration with a pre-recorded speech, columnist Johan Wanloo criticized in GP Göteborgs-Posten newspaper Victoria not arriving to Gothenburg to give her speech.

Margareta Thorgren, the director of the Information Department of the Royal Court, writes an answer to Johan Wanloo at today's GP:
Columnist Johan Wanloo expressed his big disappointment that the Crown Princess has chosen not to attend physically but has given her speech, which he writes, "digitally from her home Haga Palace".
Thorgren tells that the court received two invitations from the City of Gothenburg, one to a smaller celebration on June 4, 2021 and another to 2023. The King thinks that of course Gothenburg's 400th anniversary should be celebrated. That the King should participate in the same anniversary twice, however, is not customary. That's why the King and Queen chose to agree to attend the big celebration in 2023, while Victoria and Daniel agreed to this year's celebration.
Thorgren writes that we are still in a pandemic: The royal family remains restrictive with travel. Our experience is that during royal visits, crowds arise, which is inappropriate with regard to the risk of infection. Out of respect for the serious situation, they therefore chose to take the safe before the unsafe and recommend the Crown Princess to participate digitally. A decision that I believe and hope that most people understand. It is therefore unfortunate if what is an expression of care is instead interpreted as nonchalance. This is simply not true. The royal family is Sweden's royal family and cares for the whole country.
Thorgren tells that the King plans to visit Gothenburg in September to inaugurate the Hisingsbron. In October, the King and Queen plan to christen a research ship, reopen the children's hospital and inaugurate a new organ in Gothenburg Concert Hall.
Thorgren mentions also that Victoria's greeting was not recorded at Haga Palace as Wanloo writes, but - as can be seen in the speech - at Logården by the Royal Palace. A place chosen especially for the proximity to Skeppsbrokajen where the classic Göta canal boats, which connect the kingdom's two largest cities, dock.

Victoria had today a meeting with Act Church of Sweden.
The Church of Sweden's international work is part of the ACT (Action by Churches Together) alliance, which consists of over 150 churches and faith-based aid organizations around the world.
Victoria got information about Act Church of Sweden's activities with a focus on, among other things, humanitarian disaster relief work and long-term aid work with projects in agricultural development, gender equality and peacekeeping work.
Victoria has been the patron of the Church of Sweden's international work since 2008.

Victoria visited Gripsholm Castle and Hjorthagen (Gripsholm Deer Field) with Rio last week:

At Facebook and Instagram of the Royal Palaces:
Last week, the Crown Princess visited Gripsholm Castle with gardens and Hjorthagen (Gripsholm Deer Field) to get an insight into the ongoing activities.
Getting through the Castle halls on Gripsholm is a journey through history and the sights are many - the Vasa Kings' renaissance rooms, Gustav III's well-preserved 18th century Theater and the National Portrait Gallery are just a few examples. Next to the Castle is the orangery with plantations and herb garden, after which the nature reserve expands with Hjorthagen's unique flora and fauna. Gripsholms Hjorthage is a sixty hectare reserve with about a hundred fallow deer in unique oak pastures. The deer were moved here in the 1890s from Hjorthagen on Norra Djurgården, which would then begin to be built on. Today you can study up close large herds of deer roaming in their enclosure.
Gripsholm Castle is open daily until September. Hjorthagen is open all year round.

Victoria's pre-recorded speech was just shown at the Opening Plenary of the Fifth United Nations Special Thematic Session on Water and Disasters “Building Back Better towards More Resilient and Sustainable Post-COVID-19 World”. I watched the event live.
The Session is the highest-level event globally around this issue where representatives of the member states and diverse stakeholders share the recognition and understanding that addressing the issue of “water and disasters” is a critical element of achieving sustainable development. The Session will focus on sharing experience and promoting actions to realize more sustainable, resilient and climate adaptive post-COVID-19 world based on the lessons learned from the Pandemic. It will also provide a concrete step towards acceleration of SDGs and other globally agreed agendas to be back on track under and post-COVID-19 by providing with useful lessons, innovative ideas, and common understandings.

Court website:
On Friday 25 June Victoria spoke in connection with the opening ceremony of the United Nations' fifth thematic session on water-related disasters.
The UN thematic sessions on water-related disasters (STSWD) have been held every two years since 2013. This year's meeting was digital and the Victoria was one of the invited keynote speakers.
She said in her speech among other things:
"Almost three out of four natural disasters are water-related, like floods and drought. So the topic to be discussed today is, literally, a matter of life and death.
Disaster risk must not only be reduced; in order to cope with the growing number of climate-related disasters, we need to improve our ability to anticipate risk and take anticipatory action."

About The Crown Princess Victoria's Fund at the website and Instagram of Radiohjälpen, Victoria has met a girl who has been at a camp The Crown Princess Victoria's Fund supports.

"Before the camp, I thought no one really liked me. I did not like myself. Then I noticed at camp that these people really like me, and they accept me for who I am. ”
So says Sara, one of the participants in the activities that Radiohjälpen supports where the Crown Princess is the patron. The Crown Princess, who has met both Sara and youth leader Johanna, comments on this year's focus on mental health:
"Many people are suffering from mental illness today, and the pandemic has not improved. It is very important that we talk about these issues, and work with them ".
At this year's Victoria Concert, you can contribute to the important work!
On July 14, we celebrate the Crown Princess' birthday through the traditional concert that broadcast on SVT. There are several ways to get involved and support children and young people with disabilities or chronic illness. This year, we pay special attention to the mental health of children and young people.

We can see a short video of the meeting and the camp at the website of Radiohjälpen, Victoria met the girls at The Turkish Kiosk in Haga Park
Radiohjälpen

I think we will see the clip of this meeting at the Victoria Concert, as in previous years.
(..)

Short video clip of this at Facebook of Radiohjälpen, Victoria meeting the girls and speaking:
For many years, the "Våga va dig själv!!!" ("Dare to be yourself !!!") association has arranged summer camps for young people, to help them build a sense of self and dare to be themselves. More and more children and young people in Sweden are living with mental illness, and the pandemic has worsened the situation even more.
Through funds from the Crown Princess Victoria's Fund, Radiohjälpen has been able to support the association's camp activities. Join and meet some participants who tell what the camps have meant to them and how they themselves want to give back, to strengthen others.

Victoria's visit to Stockholm Archipelago yesterday was filmed to TV4's annual program of the Royal Family. The host of the program, Rania Shemoun Olsson, posted photos to her Instagram and writes:
"Out on Utö with the Crown Princess today. And the best, apart from the four-legged royal family member Rio and the driving spirits' work for the environment, the fishermen and the Baltic Sea, were the giant yellow zucchinis we brought home. No dinner anxiety today, in other words - there will be a party for oil-fried zucchinis with salt, pepper and maybe a little chili. Recipes for the vegetable were also gratefully received. Maybe it will be the same dish at Haga tonight."

Victoria had a full day in the Stockholm archipelago, together with her new workmate, dog Rio.
The first stop was Ålö and Båtshaket. The assignment focused on Victoria's heart question water, she wanted to know more about how the gang from Initiativ Utö worked to create and secure the unique aquatic environment in Södra Fladen's wetland.
Victoria was greeted with morning coffee on the pier (in Victoria's case always tea). The sun was shining and the sea was almost shiny and Rio hung on, with wet paws and a very happy tail.
Victoria was pleased with her day in the archipelago, thanked and said that this was so nice. She said it was wonderful to come here and listen to the work the people do. It is impressive that they are constantly exploring new areas and learning and also daring to try, Victoria said at Gruvbryggan on Utö a few hours later. She went to the boat with self-picked potatoes in her bag. The dinner at Haga was saved.

The court put finally today an article about Victoria's visit to the archipelago to its website.

The last Thursday in August is the Baltic Sea Day. Due to this, Victoria visited Initiative Utö to get information about the work the initiative does and to highlight the importance of protecting the Baltic Sea. She visited Utö and met representatives from Initiativ Utö and Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences SLU.
Victoria landed on Ålö and was welcomed by the initiators of Initiative Utö Robert Cederlund and Thomas Hjelm.
At Båtshaket, she received information about Initiative Utö - history, purpose and goals as well as the efforts that the initiative makes.
After the initial conversation on Ålö, Victoria visited the wetlands of Southern Flanders. She was also given a tour of arable land prepared by the wetland where the local restaurants grow their vegetables.
