It’s with great excitement that UNYA Aalborg welcomes it’s new Headmanship. Keep an eye on our Facebook Page to stay updated on exciting projects in UNYA Aalborg!

The head

Mathilde Thibeault-Jacobsen

Hey there! My name is Mathilde, I am 21 years old and study Language and International studies at AAU. As Head of UNYA Aalborg my vision is to ensure cooperation with other NGO’s and external partners such as UNA and Aalborg municipality. I also aim at creating an active and productive dynamic for our volunteers in developing a community where ideas and project can be achieved by helping one another.

Finance head

Nikolai Wurtz Jacobsen

We are currently waiting to hear from Danske Bank before we can continue making the annual reports, so I am mainly trying to find sponsorships and get an overview of the reports created so far.


Maddie Cohen

As Secretary of the Aalborg division I am here to ensure that administrative tasks are run smoothly and effectively within the management, while also helping any volunteers with questions.

Social Media

I'm Irina - the leader of Social Media team. Our team has 8 members at the moment and we are currently trying to develop a strategy to increase engagement on UNYA’s social media platforms, as well as creating more distinctive content (from designs to captions). We are also working on launching a series on local businesses in Aalborg that would highlight small local shops and restaurants through posts on UNYA’s Instagram and Facebook. Our first #locallyAalborg post is coming soon, so stay tuned.


I'm Diego - the leader of Media team. We are working on creating a new promotional video for UNYA Aalborg. We also have some creative ideas regarding knowing about and promoting local landmarks/sights that people can visit during this quarantine period. Finally, we help the other teams with photography and video making.

Public Relations

I'm Diana - the leader of PR team. Our team has 12 members at the moment and we are currently trying to intensify UNYA digital footprint - social media accounts, metrics, user friendly and attractive website, regularly updated relevant content, newsletter once a month. We are also collaborating with Social media, Media team and Journalism team under a joint and up-to-date communications strategy for further development. Besides that we are also working on finding new sponsors, partners and speakers for the events.


My name is Caroline and I 'm the leader of Journalism team. Our team has 10 volunteers. We are currently working on an article about the impact of the pandemic on students' life. The following month on International Women's Day we will hold an event with the aim to rewrite, write and translate Wikipedia-articles about women. So stay tuned! I look forward to meet you all and bring awareness to UN-affiliated issues and values.

Gender equality

My name is Sarah and I’m the current leader of the Gender Equality Working group. Our aims are to promote and encourage a general understanding of gender-related challenges and to foster communication and exchange information to improve mutual understandings of gender (in)equalities. We are currently 10 volunteers in the group. We have decided to focus on three different overall themes when creating events and writing articles, being ‘gender identity’, ‘menstrual and sexual health+reproductive rights’ and ‘women in decision-making positions’.

Climate Action

Hi, my name is Bodil Andersen and I’m the new tenant leader for UNYA’s Climate Action group! We are currently 12 volunteers on my team, eager to start working on some cool climate related events. In the Climate Action group we will aim to gain as much knowledge about our lovely earth as possible, and pass that knowledge on to others through events, social media campaigns, and newsletters. We will think of innovative ways to create events that will both be fun and informing.

Global Health

My name is Sarah and I'm the teamleader of Global Health working group. Currently we are still getting to know each other, but also drafting some documents on potential discussion topics, one regarding the topic of vaccine passports and how it could potentially threaten democratic freedoms either way. And one regarding how the Covid-19 crisis has impacted the progress of SDG 3.

Debate & Peace/justice

Hey! My name is Mark and I’m currently acting as the tenant team leader for both the Debate and Peace/Justice working groups. Concerning the former, we are a group of fourteen that is currently focused on creating events that inspire fruitful discussions around relevant contemporary issues - in ways that promote a thoughtful understanding regarding both sides of a given issue. Concerning the latter, we are a group of twenty-one that is primarily focused on expanding awareness among youth regarding SDG 16 with an emphasis on solution-based discussions. In both groups, I wish to create a safe atmosphere that permits the continued development of our capacities as both future social entrepreneurs and agents of change within the international political environment. If this sounds like something that may interest you, come join our groups!

Disclaimer: The teamleaders and working group leaders are in power
until our next Branch Assembly that will be held on the 19th of April.
