Erik Carter from Radikal Ungdom has been the President of the NCF since August 2014, and will run for his third term as President at the Repskap in Oslo in the end of April.
Erik is 22 years old, works full time for Microsoft Denmark and has a bachelor in Political Science from the University of Copenhagen. He's the former European Officer of Radikal Ungdom.
"2014 was all about restructuring the NCF's foundation. We had a devastated economy, unfair membership fees and were unable to have physical meetings within the board. After getting our funding back in 2015, we've focused on refining the work that went into the political program. We've also got a whole new website, massively improved our presence on Facebook and Instagram and been very active in our respective member organizations. And of course we've been celebrating the milestone the 50-year anniversary was for us in October 2015 in Copenhagen."
"We've been in Nordic national media several times, we've put actual policy on the agenda in the Nordic Council and we're currently building a campaign around removing the Nordic borders. 2016 is the year where the NCF not only has a voice - it's the year where our voice will be heard.
We'll also be having totally new initiatives: a meeting for all the secretary generals of NCF-organizations in Helsinki in May and a Summer Camp for 65 people in Umeå in Sweden in July. We've secured funding for these events by being proactive and planning ahead. This approach is what I belive will keep the NCF going forward and evolving in the future. We need to be the place where people meet each other. Build friendships, networks and experiences that last."
The new board will be elected the 30th April 2016 in Oslo, Norway.
