RAOUL WALLENBERG ACADEMY
Raoul Wallenberg Academy is acting in the spirit of Raoul Wallenberg, by supporting young people to find the courage to make a difference and to take action for equal rights. We cultivate the four qualities common to positive change-makers in society such as Raoul Wallenberg: empathy, courage, leadership and cooperation. We do this by offering tools, education and long-term school projects.
Raoul Wallenberg Academy was founded in 2001 by, among others, Raoul Wallenberg’s sister Nina Lagergren.
