Come along on a magical walk up Ekebergåsen. Norad and the City of Oslo invite both young and old to walk together for the UN Sustainable Development Goals. At the top there will be a free outdoor concert.

Grab a headlamp and join us, like thousands of Norwegians have done before you in many places across the country, as we take some important steps for the UN Sustainability Development Goals.

Practical information

The event will be free of charge and free of alcohol.
Changes may be made to the event at short notice due to the weather.

Representatives from Norad, the Norwegian Trekking Association, and the Norwegian Red Cross will ensure you have a safe and memorable experience.

Three routes

The night walk will take three routes over Ekebergåsen:

  • For those who want to raise their heart rate, the walk will start in Konows Gate at the foot of Ekebergåsen
  • You can try an easier route by starting at Ekeberg Camping
  • You can also take an easier route by starting from the playing fields on Ekebergsletta and walking along the gravel path into the concert area

On all of the routes, you will walk through beautiful light installations and learn more about the Sustainable Development Goals. Bring along a headlamp so you can form part of a torchlight chain to remind the whole population of Oslo that we still have some way to go to achieve the goals.


At the top we will arrange the coolest outdoor concert of the autumn. We can promise exciting artists and a great atmosphere during an evening under an open sky.

Tips for the walk

We recommend that you bring the following with you:

  • Headlamps
  • Remember, it will be a long autumn evening outside so make sure you bring sufficient warm and waterproof clothing
  • A backpack with hot and cold beverages, as well as something to eat. There will be food stalls next to the concert area, but you should expect queues
  • Earplugs
  • Seating pads

Oslo European Green Capital 2019 and the Sustainable Development Goals

The 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals constitute the global work plan for eradicating poverty, combating inequality, and halting climate changes by 2030. The goals apply to every country in the world, including Norway. Most people live in cities and it is, therefore, also here that we must roll up our sleeves and work the hardest.

As the European Green Capital for 2019, Oslo will particularly have to focus on Sustainable Development Goal number 11 next year: Sustainable Cities and Communities.

If we are to achieve the goals, a lot of people will have to join in the collective voluntary effort. Knowing the goals is the first step to taking action. The world's most beautiful night walk is part of an awareness raising campaign being run by Norad - the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation.
