    • In 2008 the Club of Madrid, the Bellona Foundation and the utility company Hafslund ASA joined forces to organize the top level climate conference in Norway called #CC8 (Climate Conference 08: Technology and Finance in Climate Cooperation). In 2009 the same organizers are arranging CC9 (Climate Conference 09: Green Technology and Finance – Striking a Fair Climate Deal) which will take place on 4 and 5 June at Hafslund Manor in Sarpsborg, Norway. It will be followed by a climate festival for children in the adjacent park on 6 June.

      The objective of CC9 is to contribute to the conclusion of a fair climate agreement by advancing the potential of green technology and adequate funding. Investing in the development and diffusion of green technologies and renewable energy is a sustainable way to stimulate the economy and create new jobs - sustainable economic growth that can reinforce efforts to combat climate change while respecting development needs.

      His Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Haakon of Norway will open the Conference.

      Among those who will be speaking at CC9 is Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who has made a name for himself as a clear-headed and dynamic advocate for the environment. Kennedy founded and now chairs the Waterkeeper Alliance, an organization working to improve water quality in the US and elsewhere in the world. In his work as a lawyer, Kennedy handles cases for the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), one of the largest environmental organizations in the US. The NRDC is known as a solution-oriented and competent player in the environmental field. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is the first member of the Kennedy family to visit Norway.

      In addition to Mr. Kennedy, many other prestigious names will be participating at CC9, including Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, Norwegian Minister of the Environment and International Development Erik Solheim and Stephen O. Andersen, director of Strategic Climate Projects in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
