Arendalsuka is an annual national event where Norwegian politicians and leaders in the business community come together in Arendal for one week to participate in conversations regarding democracy and the future of the country.

Some of the more popular issues discussed over the years include those pertaining to education, health, infrastructure, gender equality and the climate. Arendalsuka’s program is made up of the activities that are arranged by the event’s participants to highlight the issues that they would like to discuss. 

Arendalsuka was held for the first time in 2012, with 50 events and 30 stands. It has grown tremendously since then and this year, more than 1000 events are expected to be arranged in the city centre of Arendal. We can also expect to see 200 stands by various organisations and voluntary associations throughout the city centre.

Arendalsuka 2022 will take place from 15 – 19 August. The event is free and open to everyone.
