The Norwegian Crown Prince and Crown Princess support youth in the fight against global warming

Eighteen young adults met the Norwegian Crown Prince and Crown Princess during a ten-day expedition called "Voyage for the Future" along the coast of Svalbard, an archipelago in the European High Arctic. The Crown Prince and Crown Princess painted their fingers green and took part in a global video movement to show their personal commitment to stop climate change.

The expedition was organized by WWF - the global conservation organization. It mixed field experience with science and communications training, and provided the participants with an opportunity to develop plans for global action on climate change. Lectures from eminent researchers covered climate change science and the global feedback effects associated with rising temperatures in the Arctic. Voyage participants are now stimulating broad public support to radically reduce greenhouse gas emissions in their nine countries (Norway, Sweden, Russia, the Netherlands, Germany, the UK, Japan, the USA and Canada).

The Crown Prince and Crown Princess showed great interest in the issue of climate change and discussed the problem and solutions with the young ambassadors. They joined the global video movement called "The Green Finger Project". The concept, to paint your index finger green and write on your palm what you want to protect from global warming, is attracting growing attention as a means of making the voice of individuals heard. The Crown Prince wrote "Dignity" and the Crown Princess wrote "My kids".

The video is posted on YouTube. The Norwegian royal couple visited Svalbard on an Arctic expedition to learn about climate change, together with the Swedish and Danish heirs to the thrones in Scandinavia.
