Ambassadors

A new initiative sees the light of day

These people have all been chosen by us because they have tirelessly and repeatedly at the best pioneer spirit told far and wide about the work of the Energy Academy. A big and heartfelt thank you must be given here. Some have even spent weeks coming here and becoming part of the organization. Many have familiarized themselves with the many details and invited people all the way to Samsø and held meetings at the energy academy. We have been puzzled for a long time and now is the time and desire perhaps of being able to form a community. Therefore, we have been a little vulnerable and humbly asked if these people could see themselves as our future local ambassadors! They could! We must meet face to face and turn what this community could entail and what an ambition that could be for the individual. It is completely voluntary, an insanely good opportunity to be able to exchange both ways. At the same time, there are also opportunities in that potential for all of us, for Samsø and for the Energy Academy. The green men in our backyard are a wonderful example of pioneers who volunteer in the spirit of the energy academy, in their very own way. We have two major art projects in Japan and now in Canada that need care and attention. We need to create the depths of the people where our ambassadors could play a crucial role, such as founding Mothers and Fathers.

“My name is Ivona, I am coming from Croatia but I have been living in Denmark for a year now. After coming to Denmark I heard about this ambitious carbon-neutral island in Midtjylland, so when it came to doing an internship it was easy to decide where to go. I am very passionate about climate change and lowering greenhouse gas emissions. Helping cities and communities reach their goals and become carbon neutral is a great way to start making these changes, and I am excited to contribute to it.”

“It makes so much sense to be an ambassador for Samsø Energy Academy …

It is no longer a question of when or how we change our way of life.

The time is up…. it is now”

“My name is Anders and I have started an internship at the Energy Academy on Samsø. I have studied marine biology in Denmark and Sweden and have just returned after a 3-year stay in Iceland. I am very interested in environmental sustainability and excited to see which experiences and challenges my internship at the Energy Academy will offer.

“I visited Denmark once and was impressed by the relaxed interaction with each other. Of course, I love the landscape here, because I come from an area with a lot of agriculture and industry in NRW. Since then, Denmark was in my mind”

“Hvem er Mathias Switzer? Han er 25 år og studere som Kaospilot og bosat i Aarhus. Han er drevet af gode relationer og nysgerrig på hvordan han kan gøre en forskel for verden omkring ham. Han er altid åben for en snak om alt lige fra ledelse og grønomstilling til fodbold og mad.”

“When I visited Samsø in 2016, I was impressed by the beautiful landscape and the lovely people. But then I found out that Samso is far more than beautiful: It is Denmark’s first island of sustainable energy and is self-sufficient in renewable energy!”

German Intership

“The promised land. The ideal workplace. In my head, an institution that over the last many years has made more sense than any other workplace and now, to a greater extent than ever, still does.
