Norges Bank

The education centre

Norges Bank’s Education Centre is an interactive learning centre that focuses on economics and in particular on Norges Bank’s tasks and social mission. Visitors to the Education Centre are invited to play the game "Horizon".

The Horizon game

Is it possible to learn about economics and have fun at the same time? We think so. Horizon, our interactive game, takes participants on a thought experiment: What would happen if we abruptly removed all the basic building blocks of a modern economy? Would we then be able to work together to rebuild such an economy?

The Horizon game is based on the economics curriculum for upper secondary school and addresses general economic issues and Norges Bank’s roles and tasks. The game is aimed at upper secondary school pupils and university and college students, but also businesses and organisations.
