A few weeks ago we traveled to Stavanger to meet - as project coordinators of the OnBoard project - with a professional designer. The project enters a stage where the group is working on how the board should look like and the interactions between the players and the board itself, so this is the best time to involve in our work a professional who can provide us with valuable expertise on the topic. During the meeting we discussed, among the other things, the terms of our cooperation, project's timeline and budget, the work we have done so far and future working meetings. We also received very useful practical tips regarding the board design and incorporation of peace education theme.
On Wednesday we visited also the Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen) which is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Norway. The rock formation is situated app. 600 metres above Lysefjorden and offers a great view of 40-kilometer long fjord surrounded by very steep mountains. Among the other attractions we have seen during our three-day stay in Stavanger were also the Norwegian Petroleum Museum (Norsk Oljemuseum) and the Old Stavanger. Thanks to the visit in the museum we could explore more, not only how oil and gas are created, discovered and produced, but also how petroleum affects Norwegian society and ethical issues involved in above-mentioned processes.
Our trip to Stavanger was very productive and beneficial for the project's development, as well as a great cultural experience for us.
