NORGES STØRSTE POLITISKE MØTEPLASS
NORWAY'S LARGEST POLITICAL MEETING PLACE
13 - 18 August 2018
Arendalsuka is Norway's largest national political festival that takes place in August in Arendal since 2012. During this week politicians from all parties, non-governmental organizations, business leaders, the media and political enthusiasts from across the country converge and take part in debates and discussions. The festival's mission is to strengthen the belief in political empowerment and democracy through open debate and involvement. It aims to lower the threshold for political participation and inspire public engagement. The festival also includes exhibitions, seminars, live music and other social events.
GRID-Arendal holds a number of events each year on themes that are relevant to a national audience. This year our events cover a wide range of topics including marine litter, development in the Arctic, corporate sustainability, blue forests, climate change in the Arctic and labor migration.
