When you’re attending Summer Days, you can hear great music, enjoy delicious food and drinks in the green grass, hanging out with your friends.
But you will also be shaken. In a figurative sense, that is.
At Summer Days, we have invited a number of young activists, all of whom will give a speech. They each speak from different perspectives. Several of them come from organisations such as Mino Ung København (community for young Danes with a different ethnic origin), The Green Student Movement, Fridays For Future and the Danish Refugee Council Youth.
We have teamed up with the speech school Røst who trains all speakers before the live premiere at Summer Days.
Below, you can meet three activists who are among the speakers at Summer Days.
I’d like to introduce myself as a young, intersectional climate activist and feminist in the youth movement Fridays For Future.
I'm at Summer Days because I want to convey my message about the climate crisis to the people.
I find inspiration in other speakers and cool activists, especially my fellow activists and friends in Fridays For Future.
They will gain a broader understanding of what the climate crisis and climate activism entail in a wider context and how global solidarity is important in the intersectional climate fight.
I have never been to Roskilde Festival but would like to in the future. The concept and the music in general seem pretty cool.
The lack of climate action from politicians and large companies towards the rest of the world.
Activist, debater and voluntary enthusiast. Fighting to create positive change and build bridges between communities through dialogue.
I'm at Summer Days to strengthen the community. Together, we're stronger.
In Danish civil society, in music and art. In history. In the community at Roskilde Festival. Where people meet on an equal terms, where no outer labels define us.
Renewed desire and energy to strengthen communities where they set foot. Dialogue and community spirit will be planted in their footsteps.
I have been at Roskilde Festival every year since 2013, as a volunteer. It is my ultimate oasis and intoxication of dance, music and humanity. Roskilde Festival is the highlight of summer where anything can happen.
I am up against anti-democratic forces. I am up against those who deny the conversation. I oppose division and polarization.
I'm a performer, on the stage, on the street, on the dance floor, in bed. I perform. The difference between me and others is that I recognise it.
In the words that come out of people's mouths. Some will speak shit, and that makes me think.
An aha experience. I'm not trying to get the participants to dance, but to think.
Roskilde raised me, Roskilde shaped me. Roskilde challenged me. Roskilde has formed me. Roskilde Festival has been my summer girlfriend every summer since the summer of '07.
According to today's line-up: Jung. Haha, no, I'm up against people's expectation of what makes a woman.
