The
memorial ‘’ Lysningen – The Clearing ’’ at Utøya is breaking ground.

Monday 11th of May construction work started on site at Utøya. The subtle landscape-adjustments are being executed in a careful manner to preserve the clearing as a biotope. No roots thicker than 2cm in diameter can be cut to ensure optimal conditions for the trees from which the 1-ton steel ring is suspended with the names of all the victims. The work is being carried out by experienced craftsmen and under advice of arborists and ecologists to ensure that the proper considerations are being taken. The memorial is to be finalized on July 22nd 2015 – commemorating the tragic events that took place on July 22nd 2011.
