NATIONAL COUNCIL OF SWEDISH YOUTH ORGANIZATIONS
A youth organization is a place where young people meet, change and improve their own everyday lives. The youth movement is broad and brings together organizations that focus on things like interests, religion, ethnicity, functionality and politics. What unites them is that both leaders and members are young.
LSU is a meeting place focused on leadership, organizational development, influence work and youth policy. Many challenges that youth organizations face require collaboration and understanding across national and cultural boundaries. Therefore, the exchange of experience and partnerships with youth organizations around the world is an important part of our mission.
