PETER WRIGHT OBE JP

We are sad to report the death on 14 February 2020 of Peter Wright, for many years Chairman of CoScan and, together with his wife Kari Moss Wright, the driving force behind much that CoScan did in recent decades. After many years as a member of the Executive Committee, Peter became Chairman in succession to Professor John Greve in May 2000, and resigned from that post in October 2007. He continued as a member of the Executive Committee with the role of General Secretary until 2011, and was thereafter elected to the newly-created post of Vice-President. An appreciation of Peter Wright will be published in the next edition of the CoScan Magazine due in June.

Travel Award:
As you may know, the CoScan Travel Award helps young British people visit a Scandinavian country. It is open to anyone between the ages of 15 and 25, planning to undertake a worthwhile project of a broadly educational nature.

You can read more about it here:

www.coscan.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/CoSc_applic.form-04042019.pdf

We’d like to help as many young people as we can, and we’d like to be in a position to give more generous grants, so please consider making a one-off or regular contribution, however small. All donations will directly help young people and continue to enhance our relationship with the Scandinavian countries.
