The Public Conversation about 22 July – Youth Engagement

Nordahl Grieg’s ‘To the Youth’ has been sung on Utøya for generations. After the brutal murder of politically active youth attending summer camp, it resonated with the whole population. A political youth organisation was hit, but it was also viewed as an attack on democratic youth engagement as a whole. For many, the legacy of 22 July is about ensuring that this engagement lives on in new generations.
