Introduction
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.
