Telenor: Telenor issues challenge to youth at next summit

(Fornebu - August 4, 2014) Telenor Group, in collaboration with the Nobel
Peace Center, invites youth to explore how mobile and digital communication
can bring social change and create opportunities for all.

Telenor Group will host its Youth Summit, in association with the Nobel Peace
Center, from Dec. 9-11, 2014, in Oslo. The event follows last year's
successful inaugural gathering (Telenor Youth Summit 2013 alumni and
recommendations) and coincides with the Nobel Peace Prize festivities taking
place the same week in Norway.

The summit will bring together youth between the ages of 18 to 25 from across
Telenor's geographical footprint in Asia and Europe. It will challenge this
generation of digital natives to demonstrate how digital communication can
improve lives and empower societies, drive inclusive growth and promote
cross-border dialogue.

"What happens when you bring 28 ambitious young people from across Asia and
Europe together with a group of peers, global experts and industry executives
at Telenor Group's headquarters and the Nobel Peace Centre? You create a hot
bed of ideas for how mobile and digital communications can fuel social and
economic change, and empower individuals and communities,'' says Telenor
Group President and Chief Executive Officer Jon Fredrik Baksaas.

The summit is an opportunity for tomorrow's social entrepreneurs to engage
with experts, thought leaders and fellow youth. It's a place to share ideas
and discuss with peers how connectivity can improve lives, fuel growth and
foster dialogue. The gathering aims to be an energetic arena where all
participants can voice their ideas, be heard and be inspired.

"We place confidence in today's digital frontrunners and tomorrows' leaders to
bring new ideas and ways of using digital and mobile communications for
societal change at the Telenor Youth Summit 2014,'' says Baksaas.

Telenor Group has launched the summit'swebsitetoday and an openFacebookgroup.
These two digital platforms provide potential applicants and other interested
parties with information about the upcoming event and last year's summit and
candidates.
