Wacky Circle Crossing leads to a Chat with the Next Famous Norwegian Environmentalist


Posted by on Wednesday, February 29, 2012



With my wife, Gail Simmons, as co-pilot, it's a mad dash up Norwegian Highway E6 from Oslo to try to be ON the Arctic Circle on the summer solstice. 


But what we're really looking forward to doing is heading northwest to Sigerfjord to meet up with 17 year old Ingrid Skjoldvaer who, in following Gro Harlem Bruntland's example in inspiring environmental leadership, has been one of the principle actors in a Norwegian organization called Nature and Youth which has been doing its level best to protect the nursery of the Northern Cod along Norway's coast. 

After a lovely lunch at her hillside home in Sigerford, Ingrid shares the triumphs and challenges she has faced as an award-winning young environmentalist.
