The Norwegian oil and gas giant Equinor has been under considerable pressure throughout 2022 to reconsider its plans to open a new huge oilfield close to the Arctic ice sheet.

A unified Norwegian environmental movement, together with several of the youth wings of the major political parties, joined forces to pressure both the company and the Parliament to stop this project, which would contravene everything the Paris agreement stands for.

Furthermore, just before Christmas it was announced that Equinor has shelved the whole plan and now awaits further developments on the world scene.

Having mobilized all of its local branches during a national week of action the Norwegian Grandparents Climate Campaign prides itself for having played an important role in all of this valuable activity.
