Frivillighetens år


På dette seminaret feirer vi deg som er ung frivillig eller som er interessert i hvordan unges deltakelse bidrar til mer demokrati. Seminaret er gratis og åpent for alle som vil lære mer om den unge frivilligheten i Norge!

Organized child and youth participation

The seminar aims to celebrate volunteering youth as important democratic citizens. By highlighting research and opinions on young people’s participation in democratic life, we hope to create a day for valuable exchange of experience, learning and good discussions.  

The conference will be in english for our nordic guests. 

Location: Popsenteret, Trondheimsveien 2, building T.
