Our College was invited to take a central place at this year’s Partnership for Change Conference in Oslo, May 14th-15th and was represented by first year student Khin Kyaw (Myanmar), Kerrion Murhesa and Director of Development Arne Osland.

The first day was on democracy during conflict, with a special focus on the situation in Myanmar and Ukraine.

The second day was on “The World We Want”, where Arne gave perspectives on the role of education as a counter force to segregation and giving an insight into the methods of UWC. Kerrion spoke from the perspective of being a resident at a centre for Asylum seekers and what meeting UWC students in this context has meant for him and his peers at Bergum Mottak in Førde.
