Building Conversation on tour in Norway
In March we travel to Norway to conduct a series of Parliament of Things at six different secondary schools. This is a collaboration with the Østfold Internasjonale Teater.
We conduct the Parliament of Things around the theme of Oil. Together with the classes we look at questions such as; should Norway stop extracting petroleum as soon as possible and start looking for new sources? How does climate change play a role in this? And how will this affect the Norwegian economy?
In addition, we conduct the Agonistic Conversation, in which the students also have a voice, or choice, in the subject. So far, topics such as legalization of drugs, refugee issues and abortion have been discussed.
