Johanna Mantere, from Svensk Ungdom has decided to run for her second term as President of the NCF. Mantere announced her candidacy at the Nordic Young Leaders Meeting last weekend in Helsinki.
“This year we’ve concentrated on our way of working within the board, renewed our statutes and developed already existing events and planned new ones. Last weekend the NCF gathered Presidents and Secretary Generals from our member organizations in Helsinki for fruitful discussions on future visions on Nordic cooperation. We believe it’s important for our member organizations to get to know and learn from each other. In a month, the NCF is going on its first study trip and physical board meeting to Brussels. It’s a great opportunity to gain more knowledge on Nordic cooperation on a global level and meet international partners.”
Mantere was elected President of the organisation a year ago at the Repskap in Helsingborg, Sweden. Besides its statutory events, the NCF will organise a second summer camp next year and continue to develop as an organisation. There is also political will to work for a stronger Nordic cooperation, a challenge Mantere is happy to accept.
“The past year has shown that there is a political will within our organisation to work for different solutions for a stronger Nordic cooperation. I have the will and the motivation to continue leading this process. Next year we will put even more concrete actions on the agenda for stronger Nordic cooperation.”
Johanna is 25 years old and has previously been the Vice President of the International Committee of Svensk Ungdom. Currently, she is finishing her master’s degree in Public International Law at Åbo Akademi in Turku, after an intense fall at the Permanent Mission of Finland at the United Nations in Geneva, where she did an internship.
The next Repskap will be held the 13-15 of April in Copenhagen. The Repskap will elect the President and the board for the upcoming year.
