  • Your guide to Torsby Municipality

Do you want to be part of the Youth Council?

The Youth Council is there to encourage young residents in the municipality to engage in issues which concern themselves, and to financially support youth projects in the municipality.

Background and goal

Torsby Youth Council has been in operation, in different forms, since 1998. The goal of the Youth Council is to encourage young people in the whole municipality to participate and become influential in matters concerning youth and to be a link between politicians and young people.

The Youth Council plays a recognised role in decision-making processes in the municipality. The Youth Secretary is a member of several municipal decision groups and when important decisions are made, they are always discussed in the Youth Council.

Youth Fund

Do you have a good idea and would you like to realise it? Something that would be fun for you, your friends and other young people in your neighbourhood? Is lack of money holding you back?

Torsby Youth Council has SEK 75,000 at its disposal annually in the Youth Fund. This money is apportioned out to youth projects in the municipality. Anyone can apply, as long as there is a project leader and a project description.
