Extract from www.ssco.se – About SSCO
Stockholm Federation of Student Unions, SSCO, is an organisation for cooperation between student unions in the Stockholm region. Through our more than 50 members SSCO represents around 80 000 students. Founded in 1896 the organisation’s original focus was providing services to the students in Stockholm. Since then SSCO has moved towards working as a lobby organisation and today the main focus of SSCO is influencing politicians on the local, regional and national levels. SSCO continues its work towards officials in all levels of government to improve the situation of the students in Stockholm and to strengthen Stockholm as a leading region for education in Sweden. By bringing student related issues to the attention of politicians and other policy makers and by working to maintain existing collaborations SSCO aims to secure students’ long-term influence in the region.

SSCO has three main tasks:
– To protect and develop Stockholm as the leading region of education in Sweden.
– To offer meeting places for students and student unions in Stockholm.
– To provide students with common services.
Every year, together with the Nobel Foundation, SSCO arranges the Nobel lottery. Everyone who is a student at a university or university college in Sweden can buy tickets to the lottery and win the right to buy a couples ticket to the Nobel Prize banquet. You must pay for the ticket if you win, the tickets costs around 1 600 SEK per person. Many students from all over Sweden try their luck in the lottery. Look out for posters at your college in September or visit www.nobellotteriet.org.
During the Swedish holiday walpurgis SSCO annually arranges the traditional student festivities. During the day the student unions participate in the celebration at Skansen. And on the evening of walpurgis there is the pub crawl where you visit student pubs around Stockholm. At www.fester.nu (only in Swedish) you can find more information about parties and pubs hosted by the student associations in Stockholm.
