Norway’s youth has nowhere to be due to the pandemic lockdown, the Red Cross reports. Now they want to increase the offer available to young people.

The Red Cross plans to open several new meeting places for young people. 

“Young people we are in contact with say that they are lonely, unmotivated, and tired of freezing outdoors. 

“Many say that they are thrown out of shops and centers,” Camilla Ringdal Dukefos, program manager for children and young people in the Norwegian Red Cross, noted.

The Red Cross’s 14 youth houses with free activities spread over 11 cities throughout the country is called “Fellesverket.” 

The Red Cross is now in the process of planning five new units. There, young people will be able to have a free meeting place with, among other things, food and homework assistance.
