What is my footprint? We make our daily choices based on our values. It depends on all of us, how do we live on this planet and take care of it. We can make a difference towards a better future and the well-being of our planet.
A footprint for the world, a sunflower for Ukraine
KSL Study Centre launched the Jalanjälkeni (My footprint) craftivism campaign in 2020. The sunflower theme was introduced in the spring of 2022 after Russia attacked Ukraine.
With small actions each one of us can influence building peace and developing democracy. Stitch your statement with the supplies you will find in your craftivism kit. For example, the national flower of Ukraine, the sunflower, is a gesture of solidarity towards Ukrainians, who have been attacked in their own homeland.
The disturbance of peace will affect us for a long time to come. People in the middle of a crisis need help and support. Peace and democracy have to be defended even stronger than before. Emotions and thoughts can be shared by craftivism.
You can stitch by yourself or gather up a group of people to do some craftivism. Doing things together enables the sharing of emotions and knowledge. Together you can also think about how to help the victims of the war. Display the work on your window, attach it on your clothes, take it to a protest or share an image of it on social media.
