Representatives from CUFA Global and CEPEMA Foundation from Brazil visited Fryshuset in Stockholm last week. The aim of the visit was to getting to know organizations and the people behind them as well as to identify possibilities for future cooperation.
The main topic of the conference was to share good practice and knowledge on inclusive ways to create work opportunities for unemployed youth from disadvantaged suburban areas.
The Swedish Council for Higher Education together with its counter partners in Island, Danmark, Norway and Finland organized a Joint Nordic school conference on the topic in Malmö between 31 august-1 sept.
