THE NON-VIOLENCE PROJECT FOUNDATION

Stena and The Non-Violence Project Foundation continue and deepen their collaboration. In connection with UN Day on October 24, Stena and the Non-Violence Project Foundation announce an expanded collaboration on the international peace and non-violence symbol “The Knotted Gun”. Today, a unique series of sculptures was unveiled at Stena’s head office in Gothenburg. The sculptures are created from Stenanium®, a metal developed by Stena Recycling, produced from, among other things, recycled weapons.

A first installation in the collaboration was carried out in September 2019 when a sculpture was donated by Stena Line to Belfast in Northern Ireland. Now five more large sculptures and several smaller ones have been created.

“It feels very good to be able to continue and deepen the collaboration with the Non-Violence Project Foundation. Stena is a major player with local roots in many places and for us it is important to contribute in various ways to a positive societal development based on our natural responsibility areas. Being able to contribute to an increased focus on peace and non-violence issues through this collaboration feels both important and highly topical,” says Dan Sten Olsson, CEO of Stena.

The first sculpture in the series “Recycled for Peace” was unveiled today at Stena AB’s headquarter in Gothenburg. Another sculpture will be placed at the Stena Nordic Recycling Center in Halmstad and the following three are planned to be placed in connection with Stena Fastigheter’s areas in Gothenburg, Stockholm and Malmö, where collaborations with schools around the Non-Violence Foundation’s education program “Schools for Peace” are also planned.

“We want to contribute in various ways to safe and pleasant neighborhoods where we are located. Through the education program, children and young people get tools to resolve conflicts without violence, they also build a stronger self-esteem and the group also develops in a positive way. We are now visiting schools in our areas to find collaborations for the coming years, says Cecilia Fasth,” CEO of Stena Fastigheter.

The sculptures are created from the metal Stenanium®, developed by Stena Recycling, which will ensure sustainable material re-use and at the same time create a deeper and more long-term collaboration between Stena and the Non-Violence Project Foundation. Stenanium® is produced from recycled weapons and other violence-related metals.
