What We Do
ABC works locally in Lund and cooperates with organisations internationally. ABCs international work is largely characterized by small-scale and self-help development cooperations.
In Sweden, ABC runs a local environment, democracy and integration project in Lund. An important part of ABC's work is also to spread information and form opinions about fair trade, organic farming and our international projects and collaborations for development work. For instance, we have several urban gardening projects (Vi Odlar, Ett Grönare Lund, GEE) that work actively to integrate environmental sustainability into the local context of Lund. We also arrange fruit picking days, urban gardening training, ecological footprint workshops, pop-up cafe’s serving organic food and more.
The international cooperations are done in conjunction with local organizations in order to strengthen them in their efforts to create better living conditions for the people they work with. Today, ABC collaborates with organizations in India and Nepal.
Our work aims to build on people's own needs and desires from a democratic perspective and on the grounds of human rights. We also see the importance of having an integrated environmental approach in our projects and collaborations as we believe that the environment has a significant impact on people's lives.
