Against firearm-related violence
in Sweden

The conference of many perspectives


Firearm-related violence ruins thousands of lives each year and Sweden has to face this challenge just like everyone else. However, no one can put a stop to violence alone, which is why we need to come together in the search for brave and proactive solutions that benefit everyone.

With this conference, we aim to inspire politicians and government officials to take action against this prevalent issue, as well as give new energy to activists and civil society actors who fight for a safer society. See you there!

Watch the film where we visit three organizations in Malmö that work against criminality and social exclusion: Boost by FC Rosengård, Möllans Basement and Malmö Tigers Wrestling Team. They all participate in the break out session on the 4th of November – read more in the program..


We share some of our own articles as well as other media such as podcasts, videos, reports and news that deepen our understanding of firearm-related violence. (Please note that a majority of the articles are in Swedish.)

Beyond political prestige

Discussions about firearm-related violence often end up in a stalemate due to differing political ideologies and opinions. We want to look beyond political prestige, and instead prioritize facts, research, collaboration and practical solutions.

Wide range of speakers

Gun violence is a complex problem that overlaps with many other issues. To find the best solution, we invite speakers and participants from a broad spectrum of backgrounds and proffessions.

Focus on dialogue

Against firearm-related violence encourages meetings and dialogues through inspiring lectures, interactive seminars and plenty of time for spontaneous connections between participants, speakers and exhibitors/partners.

For practical solutions

The purpose of this conference is for us as a society to find proactive and sustainable solutions that benefit everyone and can be implemented in your hometown. The solution could already be out there!
