Dear Toads

We hope you are enjoying this lovely Monday, the fact that your exam is finally over (for most of you at least) and that the sun is shining. March has been an eventful month that has given us sun, rain and snow, but that is not all! We had the first Pubcrawl of the year, two 'Generaler' were picked and they have together with all the awesome 'Faddrar' started to plan a whole bunch of fun activities for the 'Inspark'. To say the least, March has been a great month, and we are looking forward to the rest of the spring with all of the awesome events it brings!

The Board Informs: 

As usual, our lovely board have some notes they would like to share with all of you:

From Head of Communication:
Follow UPaD at social media so that you do not miss any events, news or pictures! You can find the links to them all at the bottom of this email = super convenient and super easy!
PS. The website is now updated with pictures and new presentations of the board members! 

From Head of Education:
On Thursday (the 30th of March) it is time for this year's first Education Committee meeting. Come by and give your feedback, share your ideas, and eat some fika. The meeting will be held in the UPaD room at the DPCR! More information can be found here

What is happening in the coming weeks?

We have some awesome events planned for you during the spring, and luckily for all of us a bunch of them are happening now in April! First of all we want to remind you of a few events happening this week:

28th of March:

  • Together with Uppsala Politicesstudernade (UPS) we have arranged a lecture with Tove Forsbacka Karlsson between 16.15-18.00 in Brusewitzsalen at Statvetenskapliga institutionen. During the autumn of 2016 Tove was an intern at the UN Association of Zimbabwe, and she will talk about how it is to do an Internship at a UN Association. For more information, click here.
  • We have also arranged Lasergame at Latitude 59°! The event will start at 19.00 so there will be time for you to attend both the lecture and the lasergame, great huh?! If you are interested in joining, sign up here!
30th of March:
  • As our Head of Education already mentioned above the first Education Committee meeting is being held on Thursday 15.15 in the UPaD-room at the DPCR, so check out this link and we will hopefully see you there! Because as Ebba says it: Education + Participation = True

But that is not all, dear toads! 

5th of April:
  • UPaD is one of the co-hosts of the annual Career Day at Östgöta nation between 14.00-18.00 on April 5th. This is a great opportunity for you to, perhaps, meet your future employer and coworkers. A few of the employers who will be there is, among many others: Afrikagrupperna, Amnesty. EU-Careers, European Commission (EPSO), Institute for Security & Development Policy, Swedish Armed Forces, Unesco and United Nations Association of Sweden. This is something you do not want to miss, so check out the event and we will see you at Östgöta nation!
21st of April
  • Hopefully you have not missed that the much appreciated Peace Gasque will take place on the 21st of April at Norrlands nation. The theme will be 'Imagine' by John Lennon and the purpose is to bring UPaD, Pax et Bellum and the DPCR together to spread their love. The event can be found here.

We would also like to remind the ones that are members of 'Uppsala studentkår' that they are holding their 'Kårval' between the 7th-21st of April. The election is held online on their website, meaning that it takes minimun effort from you to help affect the future of your studies here in Uppsala! More information can be found here!

Stay tuned...
  • Did you know that April is a special month for UPaD? And that April is one of our favorite months? That is because in April we are turning 5! And this, our dear and lovely members, is something we want to celebrate with all of you, so stay tuned and keep your eyes open for more information!
  • We promised that we have an eventful spring planned for you, and we do! We have a few projects in progress that hopefully will be revealed to all of you soon.
...because we have much more in store for you all

That was all for now, but remember to keep your ears and eyes open so you do not miss any of the exciting events happening!

But for now, go outside, soak in the D-vitamins and listen to the birds singing and we will hopefully see you all very soon!


Peace out,
Love from the board!
