  • September 2013: Climate and Clean Air Coalition High Level Assembly Announces Ambitious Agenda - Norway’s Minister of Environment and Minister of International Development served as co-hosts of the Assembly and made a significant announcement early. “We want to see other countries act,” said Bård Vegar Sohjell, Minister of Environment. “We want to enable those with the will, but not necessarily the resources, to act. Concrete efforts in developing countries are important. We are pleased to announce that Norway, in addition to strengthening our efforts at national level for this year and next year collectively, will contribute an additional 110 million Norwegian kroner (approximately 20 million US dollars) to reduce emissions of short lived climate pollutants, with a main focus on efforts in developing countries.” While not directly solar cooking related, it is encouraging to see the level of commitment countries are making to address environmental pollutants.

  • June 2007: Every year all school children in Norway are invited to take part in a great science competition called årets nysgjerrigper (The curious parker of the year). There is one main prize, but also 5 different prizes focusing on various aspects of the project. One of these prizes is the energy prize. A group of 13 pupils from 11 to 12 years old received the energy prize of 5000 kroner (about 500 pounds) for their solar cooking project in May 2007. The pupils go to the local public school, Byremo barneskole, in the county of Vest-Agder in Norway. At the moment, they are working hard at translating the whole project report to English. When they are finished, the report will be published here.
