A Blog About a Positive Change

Change has taken place and is still happening: Because as a local society, Samsø has via community, trust and unity been able to follow a master plan and collaborate on carrying it out over a period of 20 years. People from all over the world make the journey to Samsø to find out about what a society with a sincere desire to make a positive change can accomplish.

This is a blog that tells about a social success within Denmark’s green transformation and development, and functions as a kind of parallel reference in an otherwise often polarized environmental debate.

Ou ambition is to inspire readers in a way that makes clear how you can to launch your own positive change scenarios in a practical way. And each of our bloggers contribute with their own myths that can help us in making the green transition a new paradigm. 



The blog has a different mode of expression and doesn’t mind cutting through genres. Our themes work as partitions that hold together the complex content of the blog and are every year chosen according to network and importance:

2017: Resilience. Centre & periphery
2018: Letting go and holding on
2019: The future is feminine. Bad practice
2020: The global. Conspiracy
2021: The heart of the vulcano. Activism

Theme: Centre and Periphery

Opposing concepts, “center” and “periphery” are ever-present at Samsø Energy Academy. The work we carry out both locally and internationally is based on the crisis that a loss of autonomy and resources presents for the rural regions of the world when political power is centralized and people move into cities.
