It was a sunny, but cold afternoon when I landed in Oslo, Norway early last week. Arriving from Toronto that morning, I had hoped that this northern country would have sooner embraced spring. It was not so.
The warm welcome and the new friends I would meet, however, more than compensated for what was lacking in local temperature.
I was on my way to Skaugum, the home of HRH Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette of Norway, who had generously offered to host a three-day Country Chair summit in advance of this year’s Global Dignity (GD) Day celebrations on October 16, 2013.
