Zonta Club of Kungsbacka turns their town orange for the 16 Days of Activism

The Zonta Club of Kungsbacka, Sweden, successfully celebrated Orange Day on the first day of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence.

The club has had an exhibition in Fyren (The Lighthouse), a local cultural building, for three years. This year, they added a craft exhibition together with the Red Cross and VS, a company for education. It is also the first time the building a small bridge are lit up in the color orange.

The club inspired at least 50 people to knit or crochet items in orange. Even an artist created some beautiful things. People either worked alone at home or at digital craft cafés. It was a great way for people to have company, which is so important in these isolating days.

All items are now shared in The Lighthouse. As it is not recommended to visit official buildings due to COVID-19, all can be seen from outside through the windows.
