Nordic Youth Council elects Rasmus Emborg as President
“I am deeply grateful for the trust the members have shown in me to continue to lead the UNR. I will strive to strengthen the youth movement in the Nordic Region and be a spokesperson for the reality young people face – the worsening climate crisis, the growing scourge of mental health issues and violations of democratic rights around the world,” Emborg says.
Rasmus Emborg BA (25) is a member of the Social Democratic Youth of Denmark (DSU) and represents Nordic Social Democratic Youth on the UNR. A bachelor of political science, he has experience of Nordic co-operation and organisational leadership as a consultant for the Social Democrats in Denmark. His focus for the last year has been on increasing the influence the UNR exerts on the Nordic Council.
This year, for the first time, the UNR has the right to speak on all matters at the Session of the Nordic Council, giving young people a stronger voice and greater influence in the Nordic Region.
“With increased influence comes new demands, and in the next year, I look forward to continuing to develop our co-operation with the Nordic Council and lay the groundwork for the UNR of the future. I also want to kick-start a serious initiative to tackle the problem of mental health among young people in the Nordic Region,” he adds.
The UNR Session discussed 40 resolutions. The ones it approved will now be submitted to the Session of the Nordic Council, which takes place in Helsinki from 31 October to 3 November.
