Battle for Birthday Mountain

Norway, or rather retired geophysicist Bjørn Geirr Harsson wanted to give Finland a mountain for its centennial birthday this year. Mount Halti would have become the highest point of Finland if the project had gone through. Unfortunately, from a legal standpoint it would be quite complex to adjust borders between countries—even willingly—as Norway’s PM Erna Solberg indicated in her open letter. The very first paragraph of the constitution defines that the Kingdom of Norway is “indivisible and inalienable”. The effort was made into a short film and news can be followed in a Facebook group.
