Hot or not in a time of urgency

Watch Kikki Kleiven's lecture

How can we save our planet, survive, and even thrive in the 21st century? How can we create positive change in the midst of the climate crisis?

In her Lehmkuhl talk, Kikki Kleiven, the director of the Bjerknes Climate Centre will elucidate how a sound understanding of the climate problem today is urgent to direct our course to secure tomorrow’s prosperity.

Kikki brings her wide-ranging experience to add a unique insight to the climate challenge, how it has evolved over time, and what is required by all sectors to address this challenge.

It will take meaningful investments and widespread innovation to address it, but the road to zero emissions will be much easier if we scale up our efforts now.

Kristofer Lehmkuhl - 'Father of the school'

Statsråd (Cabinet Minister) Kristofer Lehmkuhl (1855-1949) was an untiring champion for NHH. Perhaps more than anyone else he had the honour of ensuring that NHH became established, and right up to his death he followed the activity of the school with a never weakening interest. He is therefore rightfully called the 'Father of the school'.

NHH has honoured Kristofer Lehmkuhl's memory by holding an annual lecture in his name for students, academic staff and invited guests. The lecture is held as close as possible to Kristofer Lehmkuhl's birthday, 25 September.

A statue stands to the memory of Statsråd Lehmkuhl in front of the main building of the school, looking over the sea towards the harbour of Bergen where the sailing training vessel bearing his name is based.

(the main part of the lectures were held in Norwegian)
