The pool


You can now apply for funding from the Nordic Youth Pool for activities by and for young people across the Nordic region! If you have a good idea and a partner from another Nordic country, you are free to apply for the pool. To receive funding, the activity must have participants from at least two Nordic countries (see guidelines below).

The application deadline in 2020 is the 30th September.

The NUBF project aims to create strong links between young people across the Nordic borders through activities for and by young people. Young people between 16-30 years from all over the Nordic countries can apply.

Remember that the project partners also organize a youth training session in September 2020, which will help you on your way to plan cool activities with other young people from all over the Nordic region. NB! It is not a requirement that you participate in the youth training to apply for the pool. The pool is open to everyone and you can apply now.

More information and guidance on how to apply for the pool will be available soon.
