Life at local level
Local authority serves in Norway as a synonym for everything boring, grey and old – like the paint flaking off the concrete walls of council buildings nationwide. So why is there such uproar when local government boundaries are redrawn?
The answer might perhaps be found in Hvis du hadde bodd her hadde du vært hjemme nå, the collection of poems written by Kjersti Bjørkmo on the basis of Norwegian local government slogans. She meets Jens Kihl, author of Dette er også Noreg. Kommunal feelgood, for a conversation moderated by Trond-Viggo Torgersen.
The conversation will be in Norwegian.
