Research and environmental monitoring in Ny-Ã…lesund
  • General public
Film producer Olav Høgetveit received support for a TV documentary on the research being conducted in Ny-Ålesund on Svalbard. The 50-minute-long film was aired by NRK as part of the lead-up to the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in November 2009.

Høgetveit and his co-director Sverre Krüger had already visited Ny-Ålesund many times and had amassed a considerable amount of footage on the research activities there. The documentary combines this unused footage with new footage and interviews with key players in Copenhagen about the relationship between research activities on Svalbard and international climate policy.
