2. To learn more about democracy, children's rights and how you can influence issues that you think are important!
3. To support the fight for children's rights! All children have the right to an equal childhood and the more we are, the greater chance we have to influence Sweden's rulers and politicians.
As a member, you get the opportunity to participate in our activities and also to influence and help shape it. Being a member of a democratic organization means that you get a vote to use at, among other things, our annual meetings. When you become a member, you also need to follow the organization's rules in order to continue being a member. We call our rules for statutes.
Most of our departments have free membership. Even if your department has a fee, membership is free for the first calendar year. To find out if the department you want to become a member of has a membership fee you can search for it and read more here.
Then you choose to become a member of the "Don't know" department in your district. We then place you in the department closest to your address.

No, Unga Örnar is a politically and religiously independent organization. This means that it is our members who decide what we should think and do - not a political party.
Unga Örnar is the children's and youth organization of the labor movement*. Being part of the labor movement means that we share our basic values, which are equality, democracy and solidarity. However, this does not mean that we always think the same thing or always agree with each other, but we are born from the same movement.
* The labor movement is a collective name for a people's movement that consists of many different organizations that work together for society to be equal, democratic and solidary. Other examples of organizations within the labor movement are the Tenants Association, LO (trade union) and the Social Democrats.
Your membership is valid for one calendar year (ie January – December, regardless of whether you are a member in, for example, April or October, you need to renew your membership in January of the following year). You need to renew your membership every year. We send renewal flyers to you via e-mail, SMS or letter at the beginning of each year. Then we also do a mailing just before the summer.
Give more children a fun and equal summer!
