General field: Science
Detailed field: Environment & Ecology
Source text - English
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Urbanization represents both a key challenge and opportunity the Nordic region faces in its transition to a
green economy. This project on green transition and competitiveness in Nordic urban regions aims to help to
make Nordic towns part of the solution to environmental and climate challenges. The project is designed to
identify indicators and methods for attractiveness and determine how the quality of small and medium-sized
towns affect the environment, public health, and the creation of attractive jobs.

Kynferðisofbeldi í æsku hefur mjög alvarlegar og langvarandi líkamlegar, sálfræðilegar, kynferðislegar og félagslegar afleiðingar. Að geta sagt einhverjum frá og fengið stuðning er því eitt af grunnatriðum í að lifa slíkt ofbeldi af.

KONSEKVENSER AV SEXUELLA ÖVERGREPP
Det finns ett starkt samband mellan utsatthet för sexuella övergrepp i barndomen och svårigheter senare i livet. Det kan vara i olika former av långvarig fysisk eller psykisk ohälsa. Det kan även ha konsekvenser för den psykiska och sexuella utvecklingen på så vis att barnet utövar våld som vuxen eller försätter sig själv i riskfyllda situationer där sex är inblandat. Därför räddar det liv när barn kan berätta om sin utsatthet och få stöd.

Livet handlar inte bara om att fokusera på lycka.
Det kommer att finnas många saker som är svåra, går
fel och som gör oss ledsna eller stressade. Det är helt
OK och normalt. Ju bättre vi kan klara av dessa svårigheter
desto lättare blir det att ta sig igenom dem. Att ha
ett utvecklande tankesätt är ett sätt att hjälpa oss
klara utmaningar.
Forskare har visat att våra hjärnor har en fantastisk
förmåga att lära sig och anpassa sig. En forskare som
heter Carol Dweck kom på termerna ’ett utvecklande
tankesätt’ och ‘låst tankesätt’ och insåg att de som
har ett utvecklande tankesätt visar sig ha bättre
självkänsla, större motståndskraft och är bättre på
att möta utmaningar.
De som har ett utvecklande tankesätt tror
att de kan lära sig nya saker och bli bättre
om de försöker, medan de som har ett låst
tankesätt tror att de är födda med en viss
mängd intelligens.
I dagboken finns det många anvisningar och uppmaningar
för att hjälpa dig främja ett utvecklande tankesätt, så
att du kan möta problem och se dem som utmaningar
du kan hantera.
