Work experience

In 1984 the German group Alphaville sang the still so great song “Forever young”. I guess I’m not so young anymore, but it has been a great ride. It all started out with the “all different – all equal” campaign in 1995. From that on I have been working with different NGOs and as a freelance consultant it has been more than 900 lectures and seminars concerning racism and xenophobia. There has been the training for trainers and youth workers, about youth and subcultures in Sweden and abroad, a great network and lots of wonderful people. In 2000 I created my own little firm Marcuz Consulting which is still going strong (or shall we say at least exists).

As a part of my legacy I can look back on successful projects as the Youth Parliament, the Living History forum and Exit Sweden. Many great moments and different people, another personal highlight for me was the Master’s Degree in Social Anthropology I received in 2007. In 2011 I embarked on a journey for a second degree, this time my goal is BA in Comparative Religions which also includes studies in Islamology and the political aspect of religions, and still in the year of 2017 I am still trying to finish that thesis.

Every year I still try to do one international training course, main topics are still racism and xenophobia, latest experience was the Multicultural Urban Solutions Training Course in Poland May 2013. Training is still a vital part of my everyday life. It goes both ways, being a participant sometime is also very important; one great moment for me was the UNIQUE RIDE in 2010.

I work with young people daily, used to work as a youth/social worker in a suburb to Stockholm, back to basic that is and where it all really started. Inspiring work indeed being around young people filled with hopes and dreams just like I had. Now my work is mainly as a Thematic Advisor with The Swedish Red Cross, tasks focus around the questions of racism and xenophobia and how to solve these issues internally in the NGO as externally.

So looking back at it all now, perhaps I’m not that old after all because there is plenty of more that has to be done and working with youth will forever keep one young. If we cannot live forever, at least our hopes and dreams will.
