The Declaration by Norway’s Prime Minister and Minster of Education to ICDE offering Norway as host country and permanent support to the ICDE

“The Norwegian Government considers the fact that the ICDE chose Norway as the location of its permanent international secretariat to be a sign of confidence in our traditions of distance education and in our country in general.

I assure you that we appreciate this confidence, and that we are pleased to host and support this international centre for distance education.

We also recognize the importance of the work done in Norway and abroad by the Norwegian Association of Distance Education, which must be one of the reasons behind the international distance education community’s decision to make Norway its permanent home.

We hope that the secretariat will be able to make an important contribution to the development of international cooperation in this vital and expanding area.”
