This is Ungdommens Folkemøde NORD's steering group. A bunch of young, visionary and energetic people from different nordic countries. Together with our project manager and project assistant, they lead the way as brain and force behind the festival.
Louise Hamran Myklebust
Project manager at Voksenåsen
Hi, I'm Louise! At Voksenåsen I’m responsible for various projects related to peace and democracy. I love involving young people in the process of creating meaningful platforms for discussion, reflection, learning and cooperation. I’m shamelessly in love with true crime and The Eurovision Song Contest. I do great at Karaoke and I’m really good at multi-tasking.
President, Union of local youth councils
My name is Nette Rimpioja, I am 20 years old and I live in Helsinki, My organization helps young finnish people to get their voice heard in decision making. Ungdommens Folkemøde NORD plays an important role empowering the Nordic youth to be part of future democracy!
Project manager at KRK INUA
Erni here. I enjoy learning about other people's culture and way of life, and volunteering for events and shorter projects is part of me. When I relax, it means Netflix, bake a cake, cook, and laze it off on the sofa and check all kinds of social media and do nothing (want to write workout, but it is only 1-2 times per week)
General coordinator, Palestinian Youth Movement
Hey, I'm Oruba! My engagement in civil society in different countries and NGOs made me realise the important role these play in protecting human rights, democracy and building bridges between societies. It’s something I am continually trying to contribute to, previously throughout SVUNG and recently UFMN.
Operations manager, the Swedish Association Of Youth Councils
And I'm John. In the Swedish Association Of Youth Councils we gather youth councils and other influence forums for young people from all over the country. I have been engaged in questions about youth empowerment and involvement for many years and looking forward to now connecting young people across the Nordics in UFN.
