- Youth issues, music and concerts are what I am a little extra passionate about, says Felix Boström who is running for the Social Democrats in the election to the church council in Bärke pastorate.

He is already involved in SSU in Smedjebacken / Ludvika and sees the church election as another step into politics.

- I get good support and good mentors and see it as a learning process, he says.

"You do not know what membership means"

Why do you think so few young people are involved in the church election?

- I think people do not know what it really means to be in the church or vote in the church election.

That, for example, you do not know that the church tax goes to youth camps and concerts so you can be in and around the church, says Felix.
