Get involved in FUF!

The world needs more people who spread knowledge about global challenges and Agenda 2030. As a member of FUF, there are several opportunities to get involved.

Our non-profit active members are the foundation of our organization. It is through their commitment that we can increase knowledge and debate about global challenges and Sweden's role in the world.

As a member of FUF, you can get involved voluntarily and contribute to a fairer and more sustainable world, while improving your CV and gaining a wider network. You can, for example, spread facts via our social media or write articles for Uttvecklingsmagasinet. You can read about each non-profit group in the menu bar on the left.

Below are answers to some frequently asked questions about getting involved with FUF.

What experience do I need?

You do not need any prior knowledge to become active in FUF's non-profit groups. We use the method learning by doing, which means that you will learn about both communication and global development during your assignment.

Where are FUF's active groups?

The largest part of our business is in Stockholm, but we have also had local groups in several cities around Sweden. Contact if you want to know more about our current non-profit activities.

When can I start?

Usually our groups start up at the beginning of each semester (September and January). As a new member, you will then receive an introduction to FUF and the work in the groups. Please keep an eye on our digital channels (for example Instagram) for upcoming startup.

What groups and networks can I get involved in?

The editorial staff (all of Sweden): Writes articles for Utvecklingsmagasinet and monitors the debate on global issues.

The SoMe group (all of Sweden): Spreads information about the world via our social media channels.

FUF-correspondents (the world): Reports on global challenges from the part of the world where they live.

The book club (Stockholm): Reads, discusses and writes reviews about books dealing with global challenges.

We previously also had an event group and local groups around the country. However, due to the government's cuts in aid, we have had to pause these groups.

What do I get back?

In addition to making friends, contacts and new knowledge, as a non-profit active member of FUF you also get to participate in various activities and training. Here are some examples:

- Courses in communication and journalistic writing

- Education on global development issues
