Event Details

What can stakeholders in the UK and Norway learn from each other when it comes to hotly debated issues like state control of energy companies, working conditions in the offshore industry, new oil fields like Rosebank, and the urgent need for a Just Transition?

Join us for a free online film screening of THE OIL MACHINE followed by a discussion on Monday 30th October at 18:00 (GMT) and 19:00 (CET). 

THE OIL MACHINE is an award-winning documentary that delves into the complex dynamics of North Sea oil & gas and considers how this machine can be tamed, dismantled, or repurposed. Through the voices of different stakeholders, THE OIL MACHINE explores the complexities of transitioning away from oil and gas as a society and considers how quickly we can do it. The film has successfully toured the UK and international film festivals over the past 12 months, and it has been praised as a great conversation starter.

The film will be introduced by its director Emma Davie. After the online screening join us for a live panel discussion to explore similarities and differences in the UK’s and Norway’s approach to oil and gas, and focus on what’s needed for a just transition in Norway. With:

  • Jake Molloy – RMT Union (Aberdeen)
  • Camilla Houeland – Researcher (The Fafo Institute for Labour and Social Research)
  • Asle Reime – National Secretary – International (Industri Energi)
  • Elise Tunstrom – Chief of Staff (Manifest Tankesmie)
  • Gabrielle Jeliazkov – Co-Author of the ‘Our Power’ report

Moderated by Aled D Fisher (Naturvernforbundet)

This online event will mark the launch of a series of in-person screenings and discussions across Norway in November in collaboration with Broen til framtiden (“Bridge to the future”).
