Crown Prince Haakon promotes dignity

Views and News from Norway has in the article Crown Prince promotes dignity published today (19 October 2010) made a summary of Aftenposten's article Skoledører vidåpne for kronprinsen (printed version, p. 6), which was also published today. It is absolutely worth reading.

Crown Prince Haakon established Dignity Day together with the US American John Hope Bryant and Pekka Himanen from Finland in 2006. Global Dignity Day this year will take place on 20 October, with 40 countries participating, and is from now on meant to be arranged annually. The intention is that students are going to share their stories about dignity with eachother and to write down what they would like to do the next year in order to strengthen their own and others' dignity, cf. the said Aftenposten article. The message is that by strengthening the dignity of others, you also strengthen your own.
