The seminar group arranges armchair talks about Western Sahara in collaboration with the Africa Groups and Emmaus Stockholm, November 2018.

The event group

To increase knowledge and deepen the debate on global challenges, FUF organizes a series of seminars, film screenings and debates every year. As an active member of the Event Group, you get to be involved in shaping our events - from idea to finished product.

The event group has an important role in FUF's work to deepen knowledge about global development and Sweden's role in the world. By arranging seminars, film screenings and other events, the Event Group ensures that forgotten issues are highlighted and that current debates gain new perspectives.

The group starts at the beginning of each semester and then takes in new members. The group is usually based in Stockholm, but since we now work with digital tutoring, we are happy to accept non-profits from all over Sweden!

Depending on the size of the group, they organize four or more events each semester. One of the most common events is our so-called armchair talks - a relaxed seminar concept where the group invites an exciting guest and where there is always plenty of time for questions and discussion.

Right now, all our seminars, including the armchair talks, are digital, but when the recommendations are eased, we hope to be able to offer events and seminars at FUF's office again.

What does the Event Group do?

- determines the topics, structure, speakers and location of the events
- handles the contact with speakers, writes and designs invitations, moderates, films the seminars etc.

You do not need any previous knowledge to join the Event Group, we train you during the assignment!
