Welcome to the first lecture on our new concept LUNCH & LEARN!

It’s exactly what it sounds like. The lectures will be shorter than our ordinary lectures, start 12:15 and end 13:00. Bring your lunch and we’ll bring coffee. The lectures will focus on current events as an addition to our ordinary lectures. In association with The Department of Political Science at the University of Umeå.

The first lecture will be held in Hörsal B on the 24th of November on the issues of EU migration management. Photos from the Moria detention camp in Lesbos, Greece, will be shown during the talk which will be held by André Larsson, journalist and photographer based in Umeå. For more information about this and coming events, check our calendar or event on Facebook.

Sponsored by The Department of Political Science at the University of Umeå.

Design UpF Umeås new logo!

Between 16/11/16 and 07/01/17 anyone have the opportunity to contribute to our association by designing our new logotype. You can make as many drafts as you like. All drafts will be considered by the board. The board will then select their favourites. The final logotype will be chosen by a vote, between the drafts the board has chosen, at the beginning of next semester. And yes, you can vote on your own logotype. The winning contributions will be the new logotype of Umeå Association of International Affairs.
For more detailed instructions and specifikations just follow the link below.
You don’t have to be a member to design a logotype so tell all your friends!
If you have any questions you can reach us at info@upfu.org.
Good luck!

Less then 24 hours to go!

One last checklist, the most important and relevant yet:

* For those of you who are coming to the drop in after 23:00, bring a valid photo ID and a proof of membership for UpF, Nordpol or Samvetet.

* If you want to buy a UpF membership it’s possible to do at the door but we would appreciate if you could do it beforehand online at: upfu.org/engagera-dig

* 01:00 Origo need, due to their regulations, close and re-open so while this is happening we’re going to do a quiz outside! During that you will be able to buy hotdogs and soda so bring cash/card and warm clothes.

* And speaking money, save some for the breakfast! American pancakes with maple syrup will be served for 40kr! Coffee/tea included.

* You are not allowed to bring your own beverages, regardless if they are containing alcohol or not! Fika on the other hand is allowed.

If you have any questions contact UpF, Nordpol or Samvetet

Election night update

As of today we’re only one week away from the big night on the 8th, and the events during the last week hasn’t made it any less exciting as the gap between the big candidates are closing in in the opinion polls.

Maybe it is due to this that the pressure to get tickets has been so overwhelming and all 100 sold out in the first few hours they were available. However, we would like to remind all of you who didn’t manage to get a ticket that drop-in will begin at 23:00 for all members of UpF, Nordpol and Samvetet. If you want to take part in the events and watch the election unfold after the dinner and aren’t a member of either association, UpF sells memberships online or at any of our events. We’d love to see you there!

Curious about what the election night will have to offer? Check our calendar or the event on Facebook for more information.
