Turbulent tiår: Trendar frå Norsk medborgerpanel

I ti år har Norsk medborgerpanel ved UiB stilt spørsmål til tusenvis av tilfeldige innbyggarar i Noreg. I desse åra har det norske samfunnet mellom anna vore igjennom oljekrise, flyktningkrise, distriktsopprør, koronapandemi, regjeringsskifter og økonomiske nedgangstider. Norsk medborgerpanel har fulgt meiningene og haldningane til folk i mange viktige spørsmål påverka av samfunnet rundt, gjennom desse ti åra. I dette jubileumsarrangementet skal me sjå på data og diskutere opinionstrendar.

12:15-13:00 Klima

  • Innleiar Thea Gregersen, forskar på NORCE
  • Kommentator Robert Næss, investeringsdirektør i Nordea
