UF goes to Almedalen 2-6 July!
Sunday, July 2nd, 2017 - Thursday, July 6th, 2017
This summer the Society of International Affairs will visit Almedalen, Visby, for the annual political event Almedalsveckan and we want you to join us! Our umbrella organization, The Swedish Association of International Affairs, SAIA, will be there to represent the many UF organizations in Sweden during 2-6 July, and arrange seminars between 3-5 July.
Almedalsveckan is Sweden’s biggest forum for political debate and will be arranged during 2-9 July. The event has been arranged for more than 40 years and is a meeting place for politicians, journalists, activists, and other people with an interest in politics. The week consists of seminars, speeches and other fun events open to everyone!

SAIA enables registration on the 22 of March at 12:00 on their website: http://ufsverige.org/en-almedalen/
The only requirement to apply is that you’re a member of UF. Since there’s a limited number of spots, make sure you register early!
Become a volunteer!
SAIA is also looking for volunteers who want to be part of the project group and help out with social media, movie screenings and logistics. Application for the 4 volunteer spots will be available through registration for the event.
As usual for the accomodation we use school facilities in Visby and the cost for accomodation for the whole period is 600 SEK per person. Every participant books the travel to Almedalen on their own. The ferry between Nynäshamn and Visby takes about 3 hours and costs between 200-300 SEK if you book early on.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us!
