A GUIDE FOR LOCAL PIONEER COMMUNITIESSince 1997, the Island of Samsø in Denmark has been implementing a community-based transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy.
Samsø’s current focus is on sustainable development. This website is an anthology of experiences, advice, tools, methods, stories, scientific perspectives and videos that in each their own way represents what Samsø islanders have learned through becoming self-sufficient in renewable energy – and fossil-free by 2030. We hope this anthology can be of use to other local pioneer communities and organizations.
On Samsø, we say that the transition has already happened, and sustainable development is something we continue to believe in and work on. What is your burning platform: Sustainable transition or sustainable development?
