“Health officials say Arendalsuka is likely not to be affected by the pandemic. Vaccination programs are expected to be completed by early August, which – again according to health officials – suggests that Arendalsuka will be conducted in the same manner as is the years prior to the pandemic,” says Ann Marchioro, Project Manager at GCE NODE.
This translates to thousands of people in the streets of Arendal, and capacity-filled debate venues.
GCE NODE has a proud tradition at Arendalsuka as the host of a series of events during this national week for societal debate, which attracts top politicians and business executives on the national, regional, and local level.
“Arendalsuka has always been an important venue for GCE NODE, and 2021 will be no exception. We plan for five events, and in addition will hold presentations and participate in panel debates of several other events,” says Marchioro.
This is the preliminary schedule (changes may occur):
TUESDAY AUGUST 17:
08:30-10:15: The Future of Energy at Gard
13:00-15:00: Global Outlook at Arendal City Hall
WEDNESDAY AUGUST 18:
11:30-12:30: How to Scale-up and Export Norwegian Sustainable Solutions at Kittelsbukt
17:30-18:30: Digitalization, Automation and Security at Kittelsbukt
THURSDAY AUGUST 19:
08:00-09:15: Energy Region Agder, Offshore Wind at Arendal Cinema
More information about all events will be added to the GCE NODE event calender in June.
