The Oslo Fjord is a gem, and one of Oslo’s greatest assets.
The fjord is a mecca for all kinds of water sports and outdoor activities. Increasingly, the urban harbour area is used for water-based activities, such as swimming, kayaking and diving. But can we trust that its environment is healthy and clean?
The natural environment of the entire Oslo Fjord is under pressure. Overfishing, boat traffic, pollution and marine litter are some of the things that threaten the ecosystems and are killing marine life. In the inner port area of Oslo, the situation is no better.
Complaining never helped anyone though, neither does sitting around and hoping someone else will act. Results start with real action, and this is your chance to contribute to real change!
We know that there are so many committed and passionate people out there who are enthused about helping to make our planet a cleaner and happier place. We want to be able to offer a regular event that you can join every week. We all know that doing good deeds gives us a sense of purpose, that we are contributing to making the world a better place, and a feeling that we are fighting for something bigger than ourselves! It all starts with small steps; by creating positive change in our little corner of the world. This will have a ripple effect, that will send out waves of change around the entire globe.
Now let’s clear the harbour together!

Climate activists and environmental groups have taken Norway to the European Court of Human RIghts, arguing that the Nordic country’s plans to drill for oil in the Arctic are harming young people’s futures. They are hoping the court finds the oil exploration licences in violation of Norway’s constitution, which guarantees the right to a healthy environment.

This initiative has its background in unique partnerships with historical references. 360HUB Global was initiated in 2001 and inspired by the new library of Alexadria, Egypt, as an icon and bridge for a global learning culture . We re-active this with the profound understanding of one ocean and one planet in 2021, and make a digital bridge from the Nordic Countries in an interactive, dynamic learning culture addressing climate change, adaption and mitigation. Creativity and to rethink our thinking is the essential aspect of building back better after the Covid19.
With the merging partnerships with Great Work Alliance, USA, working in immersive media and climate change, we celebrate the World Ocean Day of One Ocean – One Planet, by inviting our global network to come together. In partnership`s GWA distributed network we will present the initial idea of SoulSpark City, and addressing and inviting for pilots in different ecosystems on the Blue Planet.
Our partnerships are extended to people living in both landlocked countries and countries with long coastal shores We find it important to work with landlocked countries eg like Zimbabwe and include the beautiful river Zambezi and Victoria Falls representing the indigenous wisdom of Zimbabwe. Our rivers are very important four our ocean and its important role in solving the challenges on the Blue Planet. The flying rives across the Amazonia is part of this new leverage of thinking. It is due time to stop the systematic pollution, and we address this huge task with hope and action-plan in the Race towards Zero. System thinking made easy is our mantra.
