"Studiefrämjandet I Södra Dalarna is a non-profit adult education organisation operating in the central part of Sweden. It is a non-government organisation, but partly financed by the National Government and Municipalities.
Studiefrämjandet works primarily with non-formal adult education, the main focus of our work in areas connected to our 18 member organisations. Among these organisations is the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation (SNF), the National Federation of Swedish 4H, the Swedish Hunters’ Association, the Swedish Touring Club (STF), and MoKS – an umbrella organisation for music and culture associations.
Additionally, we also co-operate with numerous other non-governmental organisations (so called NGO’s) and we also have former experiences in EU cooperation projects.
We offer study circles (A study circle is a small group of at least three, though normally five to twelve participants including the circle leader, studying a specific subject or question of common interest), seminars and cultural events in a wide range of subjects such as culture, nature and environmental issues as well as parenthood, arts and crafts and outdoor education. Activities for young adults – especially rock music, role-playing and theatre – constitute the epitome of the study circles.
At the moment our organisation (study institute) has a permanent staff of seven (7) regular employees together with numerous freelance leaders.

Voices of Young Life Association (Genç Yaşamın Sesleri Derneği-GYSD) Kastamonu, Turkey
Our organization is a non-profit NGO which is located in an emigrant city with rural / semi-rural employment problems, social and financial disadvantages. Young people in our city with its 19 districts have little opportunities to discover their potential and use it for their personal development. We help in the integration of the youngsters and in our city, Kastamonu, into the European Union's system, helping them to take an active part in social issues, supporting their active citizenship behaviours to become a responsible citizen in the European Union. Our members (besides some adult supporters) are high school, university students, and other older youth whose purpose is to create a community where they can freely express themselves and where they can feel themselves as key persons in solving social problems.
