Mission and vision

To understand what YoungRUG is all about and what Active members of YoungRUG want to achieve, we formed a mission, vision and core values in 2019. These are the result of cooperative effort by YoungRUG Board members and Active members.


YoungRUG is a platform for young professionals from the UG, where knowledge-sharing and gaining inspiration is key. We focus on professional and personal development. With a fresh and open mindset, we build towards an active YoungRUG community. We do this by organizing events that foster community building and offer opportunities to young professionals to develop certain skills and build a network within the organization.


In 2025, YoungRUG is an established network within the UG and we have become the knowledge platform for young professionals. YoungRUG is a community where young professionals come together and can learn from each other. Together we organize an inspiring programme of events where networking and development are central. YoungRUG also acts as a sparring partner on topics related to young professionals both inside and outside the UG.
