Anette Trettebergstuen 
Minister of culture and equality

The first WEXFO Youth Conference is open for everybody interested in helping youth to participate in society.

At this conference you will meet activists, organizers, participants in projects, researchers, sponsors and others actively engaged in youth’s participation in society to share best practice, ideas and activities.

Lillehammer – our conference city

The World Expression Forum takes place annually in Lillehammer, Norway, in May/June. Norway ranks highly on Freedom of Expression indexes. The town of Lillehammer is a UNESCO City of Literature, an ICORN city of refuge for artists at risk and host of the biggest literature festival in Scandinavia. The city, the region (Innlandet) and the country are committed to supporting freedom of expression around the world.

We all carry a responsibility to make sure that the right to Freedom of Expression is upheld. Freedom of Expression comes with both rights and responsibilities. This is a constant investment in the democratic fabric of our societies.
