Hibakujumoku: A message from silent nuclear witnesses

At 2017's Nobel Peace Prize ceremony, Oslo received saplings from Hibakujumoku, trees that survived the nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. Today, their second-generation offspring grow in NMBU's gardens. Join a discussion on how Norway's Hibakujumoku can be best utilized to educate and give hope in these times of nuclear anxiety.
