Our green natural treasure

On Tuesday, November 12, the Nature Conservation Association in Oslo and Akershus invite you to experience nature at the Literature House in Oslo. The field photographers Kai Jensen and Espen Bratlie want to convey their field experiences through pictures and words, and social scientist and writer Andreas Hompland wants to talk with an oblique view of his relationship with Marka.
Oslomarka is the Oslo area's great natural treasure. The country's most densely populated area is blessed with large forests and nature areas which are protected by its own law for destruction. Marka is a near accessible outdoor area for a large part of Norway's population for the benefit of both body and soul. The land as a natural area is something that many are passionate about and will preserve for future generations.
This year, the Marks Act is 10 years, and at the same time is Oslo's European Capital of Environment. We believe it provides extra reason to lift what tax the market is for both outdoor life and biodiversity. It took many years and required a lot of effort to give Marka a piece of legislation. Preserving what has been won requires that many have proven themselves what values the mark gives us, and that we are constantly watching for it.
We hope that the meeting will give many a happy time and at the same time strengthen the understanding of how important it is to take care of Marka.
