The NSAC Team

The NSAC Team consists of nine sub-teams, each having their own area of focus and unique tasks. For an NSAC Team member this means that there is no typical NSAC task - they are all quite different. As a new NSAC Team member, your position the first year will be as an Organiser in one of the nine sub-teams. We open for applications to the NSAC Team once a year in December.

Apart from her endeavours within NSAC, she is engaged in organisations related to women’s rights and gender equality. She has worked with different non-profit organisations in New York, Copenhagen and Indonesia, and was recently featured in The Power of YOUth as a young leader. Tilde believes that a good education can take you far, and that education abroad takes you even further.

“NSAC has really been an eye-opener, and is continuously exposing me for several international opportunities. I really believe in the work that we are doing, and want to give to others what NSAC has given me.”
