FEATURED: Knut Ivar Bjørlykhaug gets massive exposure by TED

PhD candidate Knut Ivar Bjørlykhaug struck a nerve with his TEDx Talk on ecological sorrow. Now, his popular talk has been selected to be featured on TED.,com.

We are proud to announce that PhD candidate Knut Ivar Bjørlykhaug's Talk from TEDxUSN: "A love story: Ecological love and sorrow", has been selected to be Featured on and is currently very visible on their front page.

This means that Bjørlykhaugs talk now gets published on the TED Talks Daily audio podcast and, three weeks after its release on, the official TED Talks YouTube channel, and in the TED apps.

The TEDx team at their office in New York screens every TEDx talk given throughout the year, and a group of editors picks about 100 per year to publish as "Featured" talks on

We believe that Knut Ivar Bjørlykhaugs reflections about ecological love and sorrow should reach a larger audience, and we are happy that TED does so too, says USN's communication director, Reidun Mangrud.
