Welcome!

HIGH NORTH - HIGH TEMPERATURE DID HAPPEN!
(Monday 26th of April, 15:00)


In the end, in spite of volcanic turbulence, some 35 delegates, 11 chairpersons, 15 journalists, 15 organisers and 5 teachers from almost 20 different nationalities made it to Tromsø to take part in the 63rd international session of the European Youth Parliament. Out of all the 63 sessions, we dare to claim that High North - High Temperature has been the single most extraordinary so far.

The organisers wish to thank all of those who came, some of them after an exceptionally long journey, some after countless rebookings of flights. But also, and perhaps more importantly, we wish to extend our sympathies to all those of you who tried so hard but who simply couldn't make it. We cannot thank you enough for your efforts, for your hopes, for all your kind messages to us via facebook, e-mail and silly videos!

Finally, a big thanks to all our sponsors, and especially to the staff at Scandic Hotel who met us with such exceptional flexibility and hospitality.

With love and with honour,

The CAMELS

It's quite High Northish here at the moment with snowy weather, and the weather report says it'll continue to snow throughout the week. So pack your scarves, and have a safe flight!

Change to bus to Bardufoss. See the "getting there" section and our Facebook site for more information, or contact travel@highnorth2010.no
