Samso as an innovation case
By project manager Trine Balskilde Stoltenborg
Innovation and marketing are on the schedule for the students at the University of Copenhagen’s Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management. In one of the cases they help develop Samsø’s green golf course. This is done in a course led by Malene Lundén and Trine Balskilde Stoltenborg from Samsø Energy Academy.
Samsø is a good example of innovation in co-creation and successful marketing. The Energy Academy, together with people from CphLearning.dk, are to teach young people to do the same. Through the history of the Renewable Energy Island and by becoming acquainted with the island’s organic golf course and its sustainable initiatives, the studetns will gain access to a number of tools they can use in a further process of project development on the island.
Beside it being the road to the young people’s brains, the hope is that the teaching on Samsø will also be the road to the young people’s hearts and will even pave the way for them to make the move to the island! Samsø can never get enough of talented young people!
