Venstres studieforbund (VS) is the foundation of Venstre, the liberal party of Norway. Founded in 1965 VS has played an important role in providing civic education for Norwegian citizens. Having recently experienced a surge of activities, VS is currently in their most active years in the history of the organization. VS was founded to provide an opportunity for Venstre members and other liberal minded individuals to further their civic education by offering trainings and a public discussion fora. Their initial scope was national, but they have over the past few years been active also in international projects, such as in Bosnia and Albania. They hope to strengthen their European profile in the years to come.
