Attracting high-profile experts, academics and politicians, the Nordic Horizons events are chaired by co-founder and prominent journalist Lesley Riddoch. You can read about Lesley at http://lesleyriddoch.com. Commenting on the crucial part of volunteers like April, she says: "The Norwegians have a word for the community help that gets a house built or a park cleared by community effort - its 'dugnad'. Everything about Nordic Horizons is that sort of group voluntary effort and April is a key part."
