Om Frida Lind

My name is Frida Lind and I am currently doing an internship at the Swedish Permanent Mission to the United Nations in New York. As a small side-project during this period, I will share interesting stories from young people, have interviews with persons who are engaged for a better world and show the interlinkages of the global level and the local level, with an emphasis on the importance of young people as actors. I will foremost concentrate on the roles youth and the "regular people" play for the implementation of the UN's 2030 Development Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals. I will connect experiences from one of the biggest international institutions in the world, the UN, with the experiences I got last year from my field-study in Tanzania (where I collected material for my thesis in International Relations).

In the fall-semester 2016 I will travel to schools and universities and discuss youth involvement for development. If you have any questions, suggestions or comments, and/or are interested in getting a lecture, you are most welcome to contact me on:

Unga saknar fortfarande röst i FN

Uppföljningen av de globala utvecklingsmålen. Undertecknandet av Parisavtalet. Sverige invalt i Säkerhetsrådet. Detta var några av höjdpunkterna från min händelserika praktik på Sveriges representation vid FN:s högkvarter i New York. En plats där världsledare, diplomater, eldsjälar och kändisar samlas för att tillsammans arbeta för fred och säkerhet, hållbar utveckling och mänskliga rättigheter. En karriärdröm som gick i uppfyllelse.

Tanzania – a last reflection

During three months, I did a field study in Tanzania about aid and women’s education. I investigated two projects that focus on young women’s education. One of the projects is the Mama-course program, which gives pregnant girls a second chance to education, and the other is the Help-to-help foundation, which offers scholarships and skill-training to ambitious students who wish to study at university but don’t have the economic means to […]

Your future seems bright.DSC02073Läs mer »
