This year's new participant in FutureLab Europe

The FutureLab Europe programme focuses on young people between the ages of 20 and 30 who would like to take part in debates and influence the future of Europe. One member of this year's group of 20 individuals from all over Europe is Norwegian Stine Solvoll Navarsete. She will be heading for Brussels in January 2017 to participate in FutureLab's annual forum. 

FutureLab Europe was established i 2011 as a joint project between several European foundations, including Fritt Ord. There are currently seven different foundations taking part in the project, while the think tank, the European Policy Centre, bears the administrative responsibility. This year's group is the sixth generation of FutureLab participants. In addition to participating in several sessions in Brussels, the group will carry out proprietary projects aimed at reinforcing civil society and local democracy in their respective countries. 

Stine Solvoll Navarsete is a recipient of the Fritt Ord Foundation's student research grant for her master's thesis on young asylum-seekers. She has a bachelor's degree from the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, and a master's degree from the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights at the University of Oslo. Stine has been on the Board of SAIH – the Norwegian Students' and Academics' International Assistance Fund. 

Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson and former NJP photographer Linda Bournane Engelberth, now in the mentor program of the agency VII, both work with documentary and personal photography. On Wednesday, September 20, you can hear them talk about their methods.
