We are looking forward to seeing you in Valbyparken!


The Youth Democracy Festival is a free and non-profit democracy festival that aims to inspire young people to actively participate in society. At YDF there is both room for new thinking, big dreams and dialogue about what today's society is and what wishes we have for the future.

As a volunteer, you become part of a large community with a good mood and great creativity. You get an insight into how pop-up democracy is run on a large scale, and you get to experience some of the greatest voices.

We provide delicious food, snacks and coffee, nice YDF'23 clothes and invite you to a party after the festival. The most important thing is that you get some completely unforgettable days filled with challenging and exciting tasks in the company of a large team of interesting and committed people.

You can sign up for our different teams and take either a single shift or several. Every volunteer have at least an 8 hour shift, but you can always work more if you love volunteering! 

We have volunteers of all ages, and both volunteers who come alone and volunteers who go together. So take your friends and family with you and help organize the Youth Democracy Festival 2023 in Valbyparken!

We are looking forward to meeting you in Valbyparken!
