Activities

Do you want to engage in current social issues, develop your capacity and get new friends from the Nordic countries and the rest of Europe? Then you have come to the right place. Welcome to NSU´s educational seminars, training, youth exchanges, study visits and campaigns!

NSU is an NGYO actively present in the civil society. NSU is politically neutral but by its activities it offers framework for young people to increase their society engagement. We do this by annual programmes including:

- awareness raising activities where young people learn about a topic and then multiply their learning locally where the activity is held and/or online, and

- competence building activities for young people and youth workers to develop knowledge, skills and attitude needed for society engagement, inclusive NGYO management, facilitation by non-formal methods and personal growth.

By this activity format NSU increases youth engagement and active participation, as well as fosters development of competences. NSU´s multiplying events (fairs, public dissemination events) often require cross sectoral cooperation with institutions, municipalities and companies, which increase these stakeholders´ participation in the youth field.

 

As support for the main activity forms, we have annually a preparation meeting and an dissemination/evaluation meeting to ensure good quality educational activities run by international teams, and documentation of learning outcomes for continuous improvement. In 2019 we additionally put emphasis on youth work quality development and strengthening of youth NGYO leadership.

 

NSU´s member organisations has priority regarding the places at its activities, but in many activities are also external youth and youth workers welcome.

Thank you member organisations and funders for your support that make NSU´s activities reality!
