Her kan du læse mere om vores projekter i Netværket af Ungdomsråd



The finnish Nuva ry, danish Netværket af Ungdomsråd and swedish Sveriges Ungdomsråd are nordic national organizations that work with youth participation and youth councils. These organizations have been granted a project funding to arrange a weekend-long seminar to deepen the cooperation between the organizations and come up with ideas on how to enhance youth participation.

Main goals of our project is to develop the collaboration between Finnish, Swedish and Danish youth organizations to address common challenges. We will exchange knowledge by sharing best practices and experiences between the organizations and youth councils to improve youth participation, focusing on youth councils on local and regional levels. We will dive into the topics of inclusion, making an impact and effective cooperation. 

Participants in this summit are board members and employees of the participating organizations, in addition to other interested young members of the organizations. This is an opportunity for any youth council member to take part in international networking and developing the work of the national youth organizations.

The project will take place on the weekend of 20.-22.9.2024 close to Stockholm, Sweden. The two-night summit will consist of facilitated workshops and innovative discussions between the representatives of each partner organization. All participants will have an active role in the seminar, taking part in discussions, workshops and making presentations. 

The seminar is completely free for all participants, including travel, food and accommodation at the seminar.
