    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. Together, we explore the value of the surrounding marine resources and the educational opportunities connected to them and for the future of the coast. We aim to increase awareness towards the possibilities northern Norway can offer, and motivate them to get the knowledge needed to participate in the region’s development.
