Youth League of the Finnish Norden Association (PNN) and Föreningarna Nordens Förbund (FNF) & Föreningarna Nordens Ungdomsförbund (FNUF) have initiated a project aimed at increasing youth participation “A Stronger Nordic Youth Movement” (SNYM). The project seeks to promote youth engagement and commitment to civil society while deepening the understanding of the barriers and challenges young people face in participating in the Nordic civil society. The project will be implemented from September 1, 2023, to August 31, 2025. It consists of three parts, including three distinct workshops, two of which will be held in Finland and one in Denmark.
The first workshop aims to assess and map the current situation of civil society in the Nordic countries, with a focus on examining platforms and resources available to young people. The workshop will also identify active young individuals and discuss ways to increase their participation and interest in civil society. Challenges related to youth participation will also be addressed. The project aims to gather young participants aged 18–29 from various parts of the Nordic countries for the workshops. The detailed program for the first workshop will be updated in February.
