LOCAL HOLISTIC SUSTAINABILITY
2012, Höfn (IS)

The Municipality of Höfn (Iceland) invited designers from the Nordic Baltic region to investigate their locality with a focus on the potential of the development of sustainable and holistic tourism, cultural activities and general business opportunities in the area. After visiting and mapping out existing "alternatives" (small, sustainable businesses and projects in and around Höfn) and meeting and interviewing locals, we looked into questions such as "How to make the tourist season longer" "How can local people tell their stories?" "How to involve locals and tourists in the development of the community?" or "What is the potential of waste in the area?" The findings and reflections were presented in an exhibition in the townhall of Höfn and a tool-kit was delivered to the town to use for further co-creative action within the local community.
The pdf-documentation me and Mads Palsrud made of the project can be found here.
