Utøya

We invite you to join us at Utøya Sunday, May 29.

22. July 2011 Utøya became the scene of the worst terrorist attack in Norwegian history. A far-right terrorist attacked AUF’s summer camp, and many were killed. Today Utøya is an open, accessible and inclusive arena for engaging, learning and remembering. Utøya facilitates political engagement, debate and participation for Norwegian and international guests. Tens of thousands of youth come to the Utøya democracy centre every year to get the tools to create a better world.

This trip is open to a limited number of participants. Book your congress pass now to secure your spot as a participant.
