Johanna jaring: Intern
Johanna Jaring sees the importance of changing societal norms for a society based on diversity and tolerance to be possible. This would be a society that enables differences, where non-normative bodies and identities feel included and don’t have to change or adjust. Johanna has a Bachelor’s degree in Global Studies and are currently enrolled in the Master’s Programme in Gendering Practices at the University of Gothenburg. In her spear time she is involved in the network No One is Illegal.
What is the Order of the Teaspoon for me? I believe that civil society organisations have an important role to play when working for a more inclusive society, this since they have the possibility to work as platforms for different voices that can raise awareness about different forms of oppression and for developing strategies for change.
