Norway has just scored highest on the World Happiness Report 2017, this in spite of the recent downturn in the oil industry.

However, this downturn has affected the country in various ways, acting as a wake-up call that 'their oil' won't last forever.

So how is Norway meeting these challenges, and what can we learn from our North Sea neighbours?

Join long-time southern Norway resident Karin Lee-Hansen - from Tekna, the Norwegian Society of Graduate Technical and Scientific Professionals (includes engineers) - as she discusses the country's current situation.

Topics include:

  • The Norwegian Model: a blueprint for economic success?
  • Dealing with the past: decommissioning old North Sea oil rigs
  • Dealing with the future: new projects and industries springing up using examples from the Agder region of southern Norway.
