Magnus Thuvesson is a competence development leader for topics related to children at IKEA Range & Supply. He runs a regular “Kids’ Panel” as a way to collaborate with children of all ages in the design of various IKEA products.
I’m excited about the movement I see happening among young people. From the work we do, I can see that kids are really, really worried about the future. But they’re active and putting pressure on global leaders. As a big company, it’s our job to pay attention to what they have to say about the climate. And about wardrobes too.
I’ve learned so much from working with kids. But I’m also a parent, and I can tell you that no one is perfect.
As told to Katie McCrory.
