In his speech, The King said that, through the project, Södertälje had created the ideal conditions for children and young people to have a good start in life — and faith in the future:
"Sports Without Borders is a partnership between the municipality, industry, clubs and other organisations. The thing that they all have in common is that they are striving to give you — our children and young people — faith in a good, secure future. This is a great responsibility, and an important promise to you."
In Hovsjö, the CEO of Telge Hovsjö AB Patrik Derk explained what had happened there since 2008 when The King and Queen visited the area on Sweden's National Day.
Young people then talked about the various projects, what they had done, and which activities were planned for the future.
In his speech, The King expressed how pleased he was at what Hovsjö had achieved in two years:
"When we visited, you told us about everything you were doing and everything you wanted to do. I promised to come back to see how all your plans went.
"Today I'm here to keep my promise. I'm back here in Hovsjö, and I can see how much you've achieved. I can also see that you've kept the promises you made two years ago. A lot has happened in the last couple of years. I'm impressed!"
The founder of Sports Without Borders in Sweden, Admir Lukacevic, started the movement in Landskrona and has received funding including a scholarship from The King's Young Leadership Foundation.
