The Green Sex Festival was a success!! We had approximately 100 attendees throughout the course of both day and night activities, contributing to a wonderful atmosphere that fostered a place of shared learning, inspiration and dialogue on all things green sex! Following a day of workshops and lectures, complimented with book tables and fika in between, we finished with an informative panel discussion covering topics such as non-hormonal contraception methods and the lack of standards in the sex toy industry.
During the festival we ran a hashtag competition, boosting social media exposure as well as encouraging participation among attendees:
The Sexperts are extremely happy with how things turned out and we're very proud of what we have achieved this semester.
For those Swedish speakers among us, check out the interview conducted just prior to the festival with Kondoma Mera!'s Anneli, and our very own Green Sexpert Fanny!
Due to the interested generated on the day, there are plans for the Green Sex Festival to continue in 2016, to be hosted by Kondoma Mera! We hope that future students get involved and make the festival an annual Uppsala tradition!
The week following the festival, we also took part in the fair at the CEMUS Sustainability Festival held in Blåsenhus. This gave us a further opportunity to promote our work and further entrench interest for a 2.0 festival next year.
Bye for now,
The Green Sexperts!
