About us

The Order of the Teaspoon is a Swedish foundation engaged in an active dialogue with children and young people to promote tolerance and respect. Intolerance is a growing threat in today’s society. We aim to reach young people and get them to reflect on these important issues. Our main activities are conducted in Sweden and we also contribute with our expertise in the area on conferences and seminars abroad.

Lova Wallerö Frostenson

Lova Wallerö Frostenson:
Office Manager

In her work, Lova Wallerö Frostenson wishes to emphasize the importance of art, fantasy and narrative accounts in creating insight into the living conditions of other people and, in this way, increasing our understanding for our fellow-beings.  Lova’s background is in the world of culture where she has, for many years, at Forum Stockholm, worked with the meeting place for literature, music, dance, philosophical reflection and art. This interest has also led her to studies in Social Anthropology and the History of Literature.

What is The Order of the Teaspoon to me? I see the Order of the Teaspoon as a positive and inspirational force which takes the role of culture seriously, as well the strength of individual action, in working for increased tolerance and respect for other human beings.

CamiLla Rehn: Head of education

Camilla Rehn has always strived to be a positive force in our democracy. From the beginning, she was a licensed teacher and for the past 14 years she has been working in the national parliament, the heart of our democracy, as a parliamentary school communicator. A main thread in her commitment is to find worthwhile ways of discussing complicated questions. She is keen on making her starting point in real events, teaching from experience or cultural expressions.

What is The Order of the Teaspoon to me? Human rights should be self-evident in a modern society but unfortunately things aren’t always that way. For me, the Order of the Teaspoon is both a voice in the public debate and a tireless source in the struggle for basic democratic values.

Naomi Grossman: Project assistant

Naomi Grossman believes that education and meetings are important in promoting tolerance.

What is The Order of the Teaspoon to me? I think the task of The Order of the Teaspoon is even more important today than 10 years ago when the foundation started. I think that through education and culture we can make a difference, at both a individual and a social level.

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.
