2012 Oslo

The third camp took place in Oslo in september 2012.
A strategy group formulated the 12 challenges that created the fundament for the innovative work of the camp, ranging from future competences to change the library brand and to build the necessary partnerships.
52 participants from Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark worked together for two days, discussing strategic challenges and co-creating ideas to meet theese challenges. 

The method of all three camps explores and uses creative learning processes involving library staff across 7 Nordic public libraries. The overall idea is to share experiences, learning and ideas by creating new ideas, and to learn methods for innovation on basis of strategic challenges.

The camp in Oslo was organized by Oslo in cooperation with a planning group of facilitators from Helsinki, Stockholm, Reykjavik and Aarhus.
The camp leader Reinert Mithassel and the planning group met in Oslo the weekend before opening the camp to train the methods of creative innovation and facilitation of the camp.
The outcome of the camp was an unfolded list of strategic challenges for the Nordic Public Libraries and 5 new ideas on how to meet the challenges.
The Network of Nordic Public Libraries has decided to continue as an informal network when the project period ends December 2012.
