The main focus of the day will be to problematize, motivate and inspire. After an afternoon filled with lectures and workshops we will end the day at a nation for dinner. This is a new project in the association, which means that you’ll have great opportunities to make the project your own. We are looking for you who are creative, responsible and able to work independently.

Similarly we’ve got projects that only takes a month as well as those running over an entire year. Thus, there are projects perfect for you, regardless of the amount of time you want to spend or what type of project you want to organise.
How does it work?

We recommend doing this as thoroughly as possible. How the process goes on from there depends on what project and the committee you are applying to, but be prepared for an interview with the committee presidents. You will, however, get notified within a couple of days. If you succeed, you and your project group will have a start up meeting and some training – then it’s go time!
How do I find out more?
Talk to any Elected member and they will tell you more! Or send an email, attend a committee meeting or swing by Borgen, our association house, to eat your lunch. If can be fun to talk to active project groups to know more about how it is to do projects within the association in general – but when it comes to details about a specific project it is best to talk directly to the committee presidents. You find their contact details through the Activity tags below.
We look forward to hearing from you, and wish you the best of luck with your application!
