The annual Council Meeting at the College was hosted over the weekend, with the main meetings being held on Friday 25th April. In addition to the formal meetings the Council Members offered workshops for our students, to benefit from their areas of expertise. Among the themes were work for organizations like the Red Cross, UN and Médecins Sans Frontières. The introductory session for the whole College was titled “From Munch to Mandela”. Rektor Richard Lamont gave an introductory address which was followed by presentations by visiting lecturer Dr. Simon McKeown on the the work of Edvard Munch, and Council Chair Pär Stenbäck who spoke about the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela.

In the elections at Council, Tove Veierød was re-elected for a new period as Chair of our Board. The College is most grateful to Tove for offering her services for a new period.

Many thanks to all who travelled to attend the meeting, to those who organised the events on campus and to our friends from Bergum Mottak in Førde who cooked the delicious meal at the final dinner.
