Presse

We help when Danish, Nordic and foreign press want knowledge about Samsø’s green transition.

We have extensive experience in the press management of journalists, media and agencies, ranging from small local stories to the big global story about the Energy Academy and Denmark’s Renewable Energy Island.

We have facilitated more than 100 media productions from home and abroad and aim at connecting journalists with the locations and the people who have been or still are of crucial importance to the development of Samsø.

Søren Hermansen and Malene Lundén are contact persons for the press and can inspire with angles and stories that could make a difference for you and your media.

Further down the page you will find examples of press coverage from Danish, Nordic and international press.

Below you will also find practical information about accommodations, transport, etc. that may be useful in visiting the Samsø Energy Academy and Denmark’s Renewable Energy Island.

Samsø Energy Academy also collaborates with the island’s local tourist office Visit Samsø which can help you organize your stay as well as your trip to and from the island.
