Students in Sweden ask questions about NATO and war after its neutrality ends

Sweden became the Western military alliance’s 32nd member in March.

And teenagers are no exception. The national children’s help line reported an increase in questions on concerns about war after two top officials said earlier this year that there was a risk of war in Sweden, and that Swedes must prepare. Teachers and the country’s civic education agency have designed a program to educate students on the history and geopolitics of NATO. (AP video by Chisato Tanaka and David Keyton) Read more here:
