About

Lund University Student Unions’ Association and Lund University invite nominated Student Leaders to participate in the first U21 Student Leaders’ Network Meeting.

The purpose of the meeting is to give student leaders from U21 institutions the opportunity to discuss relevant topics and organise how the student voice can be brought more into the U21 network.

As this is an inagural meeting, one of the main issues discussed will be how to organise the U21 Student Leaders’ Network in the future. The current idea is to have one physical meeting per year with a rotating chair, complemented with virtual meetings throughout the year. The network would work as a consultative body in U21. At this meeting we will discuss how we can create an effective network that will have continuity over time and represent all student organisations equally.
