** The exhibition focuses on children’s perception of the future city and the green shift. This in conjunction with the fast development of Oslo city and the rapid rising population. The capital will need more kindergartens, schools, cultural centers, housing and a better upgraded organized adjusted public transport system.

The ambitious ‘Tram program is already well underway with secured reparations for further good sustainable long-term use. When we ask the children, tomorrow’s adults their opinion, they express their views in a very positive and creative way. Children want green zones, safe traffic, a nature in harmony and envision trips to exciting destinations in pace with technology and the development of a sustainable society.
