Marine Youth Outreach

Marine Youth Outreach

An outreach project targeting pupils in secondary school in order to build a stronger coastal identity and pride within youth living in coastal societies in northern Norway. SALT, photographer Arthur Arnesen, electronica artist Benjamin Mørk and the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association travel three weeks a year to the northernmost regions to spend a whole day with the local youth.
