Last weekend, young people from four Nordic countries gathered in Oslo. They are from Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Norway, from the organisations Knas Hemma, De Anbragtes Vilkår, Pesäpuu and Forandringsfabrikken. This was the beginning of the establishment of a nordic network for young people in vulnerable life situations.

The young people have; discussed challenges in the systems in the four different countries; shared experiences about their roles in their organisations in terms of affecting policy, professional practice and education systems; and planned future activities.

It’s very motivating to collaborate with young people across different countries to make the systems designed for children and youth, and relevant higher education programmes, as optimal as possible for children. We are very grateful for a wonderful, knowledgeable and powerful weekend!
