The Nansen-Amundsen-Year In 2011 two anniversaries with great significance for Norway coincide. It is 150 years since the birth of Fridtjof Nansen and 100 years since Roald Amundsen, accompanied by four of his men, arrived as the first at the South Pole.
As a unifying framework for this jubilee year the Norwegian Government decided to establish the Nansen--Amundsen Year 2011. The objective of the celebration is to spread knowledge and arouse enthusiasm about the lives and work of Nansen and Amundsen. This year will highlight roles these men played as nation-builders and polar heroes, their contributions to science and literature, as well as Nansen's humanitarian endeavours and his role as a diplomat and politician.
