Financial support from the Swedish government

I'm happy to tell you that the 22nd World Scout Jamboree will get financial support from the Swedish government. It was announced in the state budget this morning.

The Minister for Integration and Gender Equality, Nyamko Sabuni, says that she is happy to be able to support an event that gathers tens of thousands young people from all around the world, engaged in social work and preventing racism.

We will get 15 million SEK during 2010 and with the money we now have financial support from the local government of Kristianstad, the regional government of Skåne as well as the national government in Sweden.

The press release from the Ministry could be found here (but is only available in Swedish):
