Seminar about teenager immigrants on Nov 15th. 2011, 17:00-19:30 at Undervisningsrom 1 in UiO´s blibrary

By Yong.Lin - Posted on 03 November 2011

On November 15th, CPN Junior Club, together with CPN will hold a seminar about teenager immigrants. Teenagers with immigrant background in Norway, who are immersed with the culture of their parents, could face challenges one way or another. Some have to learn a new language; some find it difficult to adjust themselves to the new school; some wonder how they can be more social. On the other hand, parents with immigrant background sometimes also feel conflicts when they communicate with their child(ren) who grow up in Norway. This time, we are very pleased to invite Mr. Rolf Undset Aakervik, director of "Mangfold i Arbeidslivet" (MiA) as the speaker. He will address issues of fitting in, being comfortable, getting to know Norwegian society, preparing for future career and also what kind of role teenagers' parents may play in a teenager's life.

The speaker: Mr. Rolf Undset Aakervik, also a senior consultant at MiA, has an educational background in migration pedagogics. He has participated in several projects helping teenager immigrants integrating into Norwegian society. Mr. Aakervik has also written several publications (books, articles and reports) about minorities and their work in Norway.

Time: November 15th. 2011, Tuesday, 17:00 - 19:30
