How do we develop an

inclusive and viable civil society?

Are you 16-30 years old and interested or active in the civil society in Sweden or Finland? Have you been engaged with questions such as climate, inclusion or (youth) participation?

If you answered yes, welcome to discuss what the future of our civil societies will look like in 2050 and beyond.  And of course: meet likeminded people!

Main goals

The newest youth barometers in Finland and Sweden show an increased political and societal growth commitment among young people. 60 + 60 participants from Sweden and Finland will gather at Hanaholmen to discuss the future of the civil society on the 14 of april 2020.

Another goal for the event is also to increase the engagement of the younger generations and to build lasting relationships over nation boarders. During 2020 the Swedish-Finnish Cultural Foundation turns 60 years and the event is part of the official celebrations.

    Who can apply?

    The event is for young (16-30-year-old) leaders and future decision makers in the third social sector (NGO), active networks, student organizations, political parties and interested individuals. You don’t need to have any previous experience, as long as you are interested and devoted!

    The event is free of charge. The participants’ travel expenses to Finland, accommodation at Hanaholmen (also Finnish participants, 2 persons/room) and meals will be covered by the organizers.
