UMO aims to offer information and inspiration to help young people to manage their own situation: at home, in relationships, in school or at work. Knowing their rights and their obligations helps them to make decisions about how they want to live. UMO wants everyone to feel that this home page is for them, no matter who they are. Conventional norms are questioned and discussed.
UMO is run by Stockholm County Council, at the request of Cehis - Center for eHealth in Sweden - and works together with youth guidance centres, student health and organizations like RFSU, RFSL Youth, BRIS and many others.
