Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2011
    This description of Marit Sanner's work was prepared when Marit Sanner was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2011.
    Despite the image of wealth and renowned social protections in Norway, the voices of young people are not well heard or considered. State-run institutions are staffed by shift workers and young people may often feel they are treated like objects. Prisons mix youth and adult inmates. Many young people in Norway feel they have little voice in their own lives. Marit Sanner is asking kids and young people to find system-changing new ideas and then facilitating their involvement in the policymaking that affects them.
