Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit paid a visit to Nore Uvdal on Tuesday April 14 2008.

They visited an elderly home, as well as meeting personally with some elderly and younger people in connection with their competition they have going, about creating meeting places between generations.

The Crown Princely Couple’s humanitarian fond has released a competition for children between the age of 14 and 16. The competition is called “Tilbake til fremtiden” – “back to the future”. They want children to talk to their grandparents or other elders in their society, and have them tell a story important to their life, so that the children can retell the story in their own way.

The purpose is to stimulate contact between different generations.

One Response to Haakon and Mette-Marit promote their competition

  1. I think this is wonderful. Our older people have such wonderful stories to tell, not just of themselves but of the way life used to be. I wish the Crown Prince and Princess well in their endeavor, and I hope we can do it here in the US and UK, too.
