Join us on Wednesday 11 October at 6pm to celebrate the Erasmus days 2023 with the Première of The Norwegian youth and the European Union: In or out? [Short documentary film in English]

We invite you for the Première of the short documentary film The Norwegian youth and the EU: in or out? (25 min), in the presence of its movie directors: Mathilde and Sophie Hériaud. The two French sisters created the Toi d’Europe association in 2017, in the aim of giving young people a voice on European issues and the future of the Union.

Through interviews conducted in Norway at the end of 2022 and Skype discussions, the Hériaud’s sisters have exchanged with a diversity of young Norwegians to better understand their perception of the EU and of the role of Norway on the continent, as well as their expectations for Europe’s future. They have compiled this material in a short film whose world premiere will be in Oslo!

The screening will be followed by an open discussion with the audience, which will tackle Norway’s special relationship with EU members and institutions, but also the current issues shaking the European continent:  the war in Ukraine, climate change, democracy and rule of law, etc. This event is part of the Erasmus days 2023, which aims at highlighting Europe’s cultural diversity and the many learning opportunities it offers.

The movie-talk evening will end with a French buffet!

This event is OPEN TO ALL, FREE and in ENGLISH
