Svalbard has some of the most beautiful nature in the world, with a rich and variegated diversity both on land and at sea. Climate change increases the pressure on nature, and it can have dramatic consequences for the life in the northern areas.

We will visit Svalbard Folkehøgskole, Rønningen’s partner in Longyearbyen. From here, and together with the students we meet, we will study the effect of climate change firsthand. We exchange our experiences with the Svalbard students so that we may widen our horizons and perspectives.

Already now climate change is leading to precipitous and significant changes in Svalbard, but scientists expect bigger and faster changes in the Arctic than in the rest of the world. Here the temperature rises at double the speed compared to world average. The quantity of sea ice has decreased at alarming rates in the last decades, and especially in the Barents Sea the temperature has increased drastically. The consequences for arctic species and ecosystems can be dramatic, and various species are on the brink of extinction. 

The Goal In addition to the Norwegian course you will get the opportunity to participate in various cultural activities, and study different subjects together with Norwegian students both inside and outside Rønningen.

This contributes to your integration, and makes it easy to get to know Norwegian fellow students and thus practise your Norwegian.


Content 300 hours of Norwegian Language
Introduction to Norwegian Culture, history and way of life
