YF Delegates to Sweden
The Social Democrats in Sweden are on the verge of a historic victory against the centre-right Alliance for Sweden coalition, the party has been campaigning hard against austerity and the negative politics of the right.
Last month the Young Fabians invited members to apply to join a campaign delegation to Sweden, travelling during their general election weekend 12-14th September. We received a huge amount of interest in the delegation and want to thank all those who applied. The final delegates have been selected and will be:
- Amrita Rose
- Unsa Chaudri
- Oana Olaru
- Peter Thorpe
- Rachel Ward
They will be joined by International Officer, Joel Mullan and Campaign Officer, Alvin Caprio who will be directing our efforts on the ground. The delegation will be lead by Young Fabian member, Nathaneal Sansam and Treasurer, Martin Edobor.
The Swedish Social Democratic Youth League, the Youth section of the Social Democrats will be hosting us over the course of the weekend. Following the visit there will be a series of debrief events based on Social Democracy in Europe, in which delegates and Young Fabian members will have the opportunity to discuss their experiences and thoughts on various aspects of European progress politics.
