Nordic Storytellers Workshop

Join us for a two-day workshop in Oslo, on the topic of storytelling and communication strategies for young civic leaders and youth organizations.


Storytelling techniques, impactful and compelling stories and storytelling campaigns, and communication strategies for diverse audiences.

During the two-day journey, you will be together with fellow activists, NGO workers, and trainers from Finland, Norway, and Sweden, and you will learn about: storytelling techniques, impactful and compelling stories and storytelling campaigns, and communication strategies for diverse audiences. At the same time, you will gain the basics in running your own workshops on similar topics for other young people from your community. Because Nordic Storytellers workshop organizers believe in the power of co-creation, during the two days, prepare to share knowledge and skills from your current work with young people and from your organization experience. Looking forward to learn from you!

  • Are you residing in one of the following countries?

    • Finland

  • Are you 16-25 years old?
