The annual Sessions

The session is the highest deciding organ of the Nordic Youth Council and the session is arranged annually in connection to the Nordic Council session, taking place traditionally in the end of October. The agenda of the UNR session often includes deciding about next years activities and budget, debating resolutions that are later proposed to the Nordic Council and electing a President and Presidium for the following year.

This year, UNR was planning to hold its annual session from Friday the 23rd of October until Sunday the 25th in Reykjavik, Iceland, but since local health authorities and police advise against organising any bigger event on Iceland this fall, the UNR presidium has now decided to cancel the physical session in Reykjavik.

A replacing digital session will be arranged on October 24, 2020 at 12.00-18.00 (CEST, Scandinavian time) over the digital platform KUDO. Please note that the exact time might change with an hour. The topics on the agenda will be limited to not debating and deciding on resolutions but will e.g. include electing the UNR presidium for 2021, determining the budget for 2021 and updating the UNR vedtäkter (statutes). The digital session will have translation, but participants are kindly asked to prepare for the possibility to change to English, if technical issues emerge.

One representative from each UNR member organization and one representative from organizations with observer status are invited to participate in the UNR session. No extra representatives are accepted to the digital session. UNR will not charge any participation fee for registration to the digital session. The registration is open 24.8-9.10.2020. Those representatives who are already registered, do not need to register again.

Updated documents will be sent out as soon as possible. Documents that have been sent out, can be found on the Scandinavian-edition of our homepage.
