Welcome to this event with Maria Grøntjernet, known as «Villmarksjenta» (Wilderness Girl)! Since early childhood Grøntjernet’s greatest interest has been to experience the wilderness. At the age of 16 she undertakes her great adventure: Fifty days walking 650 km across Norway alone. Her book lets us experience her wanderings day by day, through summer snow in the mountains, fjords, lakes and waterfalls. And in the end we ask ourselves: Isn't nature our greatest teacher?Moderated by German journalist Kristina Maidt-Zinke.
