Time: 09:15 - 10:00
Youth programme: My mother and I
In 2017, 593 people took their own lives in Norway. One was the mother of author Tiril Broch Aakre. Why do some of us choose to end it all? Is there anything one can do to prevent this happening? And how does it feel to those left behind?
Broch Aakre relates what happened when her mother died in her novel Mødre og døtre. In this conversation with pupils from Rothaugen lower secondary school, she will try to answer questions about what is perhaps the most difficult subject of all.
The event will be repeated at 10.15 in Olav H. Hauge. Both events are for invited lower secondary school pupils only.
The conversation will be in English.
