«How to pave a path for a greener world” – This is the theme that was explored by officials and delegates at EYP Norway’s Regional Sessions 2021.
Our National Selection Conference 2021 will be held in Bergen! The topic is: “Reinventing out future; reaching higher summits”.
Bergen is a city with endless possibilities! The session will take place in a city with a rich cultural life surrounded by beautiful nature, and with a goal of going fossil-free by 2050. The desire for change is present, but the path is not yet paved. Bergen has the potential to become a leading city when it comes to the development of innovative resources. If Norway is to reach its climate goals to cut emissions by 55% in 2030, we have to drastically change the way we live. We believe that we will be able to reach these goals if the youth’s voices are heard. By utilising the resources we already have around us in new and different ways, we can make it. We therefore wish to focus on creativity and innovation during the whole session, because without breaking with our current thought patterns, we will not find solutions for the future.
