  Background In March 2002, the Minister of the
Environment, Børge Brende, presented Norways
paramount goals for an overall policy on the
marine environment. The goals are presented in
the Parliamentary Report no. 12, 2001/2002.
"Protecting the Riches of the Sea". The overall
goal is to provide the prerequisites for a clean
and rich sea, inter alia, through the
establishment of external conditions that allow
us to strike a balance between the commercial
interests connected with fisheries, aquaculture
and the petroleum industry within the framework
of a sustainable development. An important part
of the Parliamentary Report is how to clean up in
Norwegian coastal- and fjord areas where the
seabed is contaminated.   The Norwegian Pollution
Control Authority (SFT) has estimated that the
costs involved in cleaning up the Norwegian ports
and fjords will be tens of billions Norwegian
Crowns (NOK). Pilot Projects are established, one
of these in the Port of Trondheim, with the
following overall objectives         to
contribute to an increased level of national
competance dealing with treatment of contaminated
sediments         to contribute to secure a good
water quality in accordance with the EU - Water
Framework Directive Viewed against the background
of the contaminated seabed in Trondheim harbour,
the pilot project will look at how we can carry
out the initiatives to remove the
contamination. Next---

Overall village objectives The village is
addressing broad, complex and interdisciplinary
subjects related to the overall objectives of
providing a clean and rich sea. This will enhance
the future sustainable development and use of the
coastal zone. To facilitate a "workable" context,
activities in Trondheim harbour on contaminated
sediments are used as a case. In the
co-operative environment of the village,
participants should focus on innovation,
creativity and assessment as a basis for
providing input and proposals for solutions and
activities of importance for dealing with
contaminated sediments in ports and in the
coastal zone.   Experts in Team is focussing on
making use of the background for each individual
student in an interdisciplinary team, providing a
broad and flexible approach to the subject
chosen, and in the team's approach to solving the
task.   Tentative problem areas With the broad
scope of this village, it will be necessary to
narrow down the subjects to be chosen, and this
will be an important part of the initiating
process of the work. The problem areas clearly
have national interest, and depending on the
village outcome, the results could be valuable
and give important input for future work and
development.   As a starting point for
discussion, the Pilot Project in Trondheim
harbour has proposed the following tentative
tasks   1.      Alternative means to clean up
contaminated seabed A critical look on the means
suggested in chapter 3.5 in the Parliamentary
Report no. 12. Make alternative suggestions to
the means. Special emphasize should be made on
how this is communicated to the general
public. 2.      How can we use dredged
contaminated sediments when they are brought on
land? A typical action to remove contaminated
sediments from the seabed is by dredging and
bringing them on land. This task will look into
innovative and sustainable ways in how these
sediments can be used. 3.      Are contaminated
sediments always considered an environmental
hazard? Should initiatives always be carried out
when contaminated sediments are present, or will
it sometimes be better not to carry out any
initiatives? 4.      What should we do about the
TBT (Tributyltin) contaminated sediments in
Trondheim harbour? In almost every Norwegian
harbour, the sediments are heavily contaminated
by TBT (Class V according to the Norwegian
classification system (Norwegian Pollution
Control Authority, report 9703)). What should be
done with these sediments? Make an
"initiative-plan" for TBT-contaminated sediments
in Trondheim harbour. 5.      May "environmental
improvement initiatives" sometimes have the
opposite effect? In the pilot project in
Trondheim harbour the contaminated sediments are
stabilised with different aggregates. Can
stabilisation of the contaminated sediments, by
adding aggregates, give negative
consequences? 6.      How to monitor the dredging
of contaminated sediments? Give suggestions for
innovative monitoring methods. Next---

Work in the village We recommend the village
teams to choose subjects where the students can
make active use of their background and
interests. Also, the students should preferably
choose subjects in each team that will supplement
or build knowledge on the subject for the whole
"village".   Experts in Team includes both a
professional and a process part. Added to this is
ability to communicate and present the results
achieved in an orderly and understandable way.
  Students in the village The interdisciplinary
subject of this village provides opportunities
for any direction of study to participate and
render valuable input to the work, depending on
the team subject chosen.   We strongly recommend
also Norwegian students to participate in this
village. This will provide valuable experience in
working - and writing report - in english, and
develop international relationships and
experience.   References         Parliamentary
