Hunt for Literary Gold
In spring 2023 Bergen International Literature Festival launched a writing competition in collaboration with the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research at the University of Bergen and the Rafto Foundation. 
They received 553 entries from 119 countries, and this evening we will meet the two winners of the competition. How do young people experience the climate crisis? And how do they express that feeling in literature?
