My name is Irina Papazu and I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Political Science, University of Copenhagen. My PhD project is about the Energy Academy and Samsø as signposts on the road towards the green transition of our societies.
I moved to Samsø in the beginning of September, and I’m going to stay until December. I will be spending the fall at the Energy Academy and on my bike, visiting people, places and meetings around the island, investigating what has happened and what continues to happen on this CO2 neutral island.
What can we learn from Samsø’s example? My hope is that the so-called ’Samsø model’ can shed light on how we may work constructively in the face of the great challenges of our time.
