The United Nation’s vice general secretary Amina J Mohammaed held a lecture at Uppsala University to talk about the state of the world today.
In her talk she highlighted several challenges the world is facing from the war in Ukraine, to the climate crisis and the increasing threat of terrorism in Africa: “In the Sahel, a lack of development, the climate crisis and government weaknesses are being exploited by terrorists”
Amina Mohammed’s lecture was dedicated to the memory of Dag Hammarskjöld, who died in a plane crash on duty as General Secretary of the UN in 1962.

Yes, it’s been a while since our last Nordljud Talk so it’s about time to open the doors of our digital meeting room to start talking again about Nordics and the media. And what better way to start off the new year than with an experienced journalist that works in Scandinavian?
Hilde Sandvik, is a Norwegian journalist based in Bergen, with many years of experience and a strong passion for the Nordic project. For over two years she has been running a collaborative show on Scandinavian public service radios.
Speaking a common ‘Scandinavian language’, a mixture of Norwegian, Swedish and Danish, is something Hilde believes in a lot and does both professionally and privately.
In October, during the Nordljud Weekend in Bergen, part of the team caught up with Hilde and spoke about Scandinavian identity, how to surpass the difficulties in understanding each other and the way many Scandinavians tend to switch into English, for simplicity.
The Nordljud Talk will take place digitally on the 6th of February 2023 and is open to all Student Radio members in the Nordic countries plus staff students & alumni of JMG, Gothenburg university.
Hilde Sandvik, is the mastermind and Norwegian radio host of the only radio show in ‘Scandinavian language’, broadcast on Norwegian, Swedish and Danish public service radios. Have a listen to Norsken, svenken og dansken here.
It´s happening! Nordljud, is going to hold a Radio News Course and you are invited to join! The course is open to all Studentradio members in the Nordics, will be held in English and digitally.
Top-notch journalists from Scandinavian public service radio (names yet to be announced!) will join us to share their experience and give us tips and tricks to produce high quality and interesting radio news. This is part of our work to build a Nordic Studentradio Newsroom. How cool is that? More than a night in Kiruna at this time of year! 😛
Do you want to know more about the course and our Newsroom project? Join us at one of our info sessions:
